Vintage Warlords are a duo from the United States that plays a mixture of sludge, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "The Invisible Foe" which was released by Redefining Darkness Records.
Clean yet disorted playing starts off the ep before going into more of a dark and heavy musical musical direction that also brings in a small amount of melodies at times and once the growls kick in the music starts going into more of a doom/death metal direction that also adds in a touch of sludge and all 3 of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
A lot of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's styles of doom an d death metal and there are also some parts that also bring in a small amount of high pitched screams and there are some riffs that are slightly influenced by grind and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and when solos and leads are utilized they add in even more of an old school death metal feeling to the recording.
Vintage Warlords plays a style of doom/death metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's but also update the style with a touch of sludge to make the music sound more modern, the production sounds very old school yet dark and heavy at the same time while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Vintage Warlords are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Exodus Of Souls". 8 out of 10.
