Buried Souls are a band from Switzerland that plays a mixture of sludge, southern, death metal and hardcore and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "The Crossing".
A very heavy sound along with some aggressive screams start of the album and they also bring in a hardcore influenced form of sludge along with some southern and stoner rock style melodies and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard while death metal growls can also be heard at times.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the fast riffs bring in a small amount of tremolo picking and the music also brings in a touch of groove metal at times and the whole album also remains heavy from beginning to ending of the r ecording and no guitar solos or leads are ever utilized.
Buried Souls plays a musical style that takes sludge and southern metal and mixes it in with hardcore and the heaviness of death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Buried Souls are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, southern, death metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Crossing" "The Worthless" and "Take my Flesh As Offering". 8 out of 10.
