Sea are a band from Boston, Massachusetts that plays a mixture of sludge, doom and post metal and this is a review of their self titled 2016 ep which was released by Third I Rex.
Drum beats start off the album along with some distorted drones before going into a very dark, heavy and melodic direction and the vocals are mostly spoken yet aggressive and you can also h ear a touch of post metal in the bands musical style and the vocals also use clean singing at times and most of t he tracks are long and epic in length.
Elements of sludge and doom metal can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads are very melodic and bring in a touch of stoner rock and when clean playing is utilized it gives the music more of a progressive feeling and most of the songs stick to a slow musical direction and on the second track growls and screams are brought into the music briefly along with the music also speeding up for a few seconds and bringing in a small amount of blast beats.
Sea plays a musical style that takes sludge, doom and post metal and mixes them together to create a style of their own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover death, nature, time, ritualistic and mythological themes.
In my opinion Sea are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, doom and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, yuo should c heck out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Moros". 8 out of 10.
