Ad Nauseum are a band from Florida that plays a mixture of sludge, doom metal and harsh noise and this is a review of their self titled 2015 ep which will be released in October by Broken Limbs Recordings.
Harsh power electronics start off the ep and a few seconds later dark and heavy guitar riffs start to kick in and takes the music into more of a doom metal direction along with some high pitched sludge screams and the noise sounds also mix in with the more heavy parts of the recording and there is also a brief use of clean playing.
At times the music can be very avant garde and there is also a brief use of death metal growls and elements of hardcore and when the music speeds up blast beats can be heard and they also give the music more of a brutal feeling while most of the songs and riffs stick to a very slow yet heavy musical direction.
Ad Nauseum plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in sludge and doom metal while also mixing in elements of hardcore and harsh noise to create a style of their own, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and angry themes.
In my opinion Ad Nauseum are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, doom metal and harsh noise and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Futility" and "Slalom In The Public River". 8 out of 10.
