Phlefonyaar are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of drone, doom, sludge and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 ep "Kissing Carrion".
Drones and ambient sounds start off the ep along with some spoken word samples a few seconds later and after the intro drum beats are added into the music before going into a heavier direction along with some aggressive vocals that also takes the music into more of a sludge and doom metal style.
Elements of industrial can be heard in the music at times while the riffs also bring in melodies at times and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and when guitar leads are utilized they also bring in more of a dark and melodic sound to the recording and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Phlefonyaar plays a musical style that is very slow, dark and heavy and mixes the heaviest styles of drone, doom and sludge metal together to create their own style, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover misanthropy and abstract concepts.
In my opinion Phlefonyaar are a very great sounding mixture of drone, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Stored For Future Nightmares" and "Wretched Thing Of Blood". 8 out of 10.
