Bittered are a band from Pennsylvania that plays a mixture of death and doom metal with a touch of grind and this is a review of their 2015 album "Hubris Aggression" which was released by Lost Apparitions Records.
A very dark sounding synth and nature sounds start off the album along with some spoken word samples and after the intro the music goes for more of a heavy doom metal sound along with some sludge style screams and the music also brings in a lot of influences from 90's death metal and after awhile the music starts adding in a touch of grind.
Most of the music sticks to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and they also bring in more death metal growls as the album progresses while some of the melodies have more of an old school feeling to them and the spoken word samples that where present on the intro also make a return in certain sections of the recording and the music also speeds up briefly and brings in a brief use of blast beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Bittered plays a style of doom/death metal that is very heavily rooted in the early 90's and also adds in sludge style vocals and grind and crust elements to make their musical style stand out a bit more, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover political themes.
In my opinion Bittered are a very great sounding mixture of doom and death metal with a touch of sludge and grind and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "America Is Killing You" "Mouth Full Of Shit" and "Consumed By Garbage". 8 out of 10.
