Grave Siesta are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of sludge, doom and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Salt & Vinegar".
A very heavy and melodic stoner metal sound starts off the album giving the music a retro 70's feeling while having the modern day heaviness and after awhile aggressive yet melodic vocals make their presence known on the recording while the solos and leads are more closer to a 70's style of doom metal.
Death metal growls, sludge style screams and melodic vocals can be heard in some parts of the songs and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and also stick to mostly a slow or mid paced musical direction while the music does speed up briefly and also adds in a few seconds of blast beats and you can also hear a touch of punk in the bands musical style at times and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Grave Siesta plays a musical style that mixes doom, stoner and sludge metal together with a touch of death metal to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover life and death themes.
In my opinion Grave Siesta are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Coffinborne" "Pile Of Tongues" and "Whispers Of the Worm". 8 out of 10.
