A very dark yet melodic guitar riff starts off the ep and starts going into more of a heavier direction after a few seconds and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and death metal growls can be heard giving t he music a touch of black metal along with some high pitched screams.
Most of the music sticks to a slow sludge/doom metal direction and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they stick to a very dark and melodic musical direction and the whole ep also remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording and some of the riffs add in a touch of the more heavier style of 90's doom/death and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and element s of harsh noise can be heard on the last track.
St. Bastard plays a style of doom/sludge metal that is very dark and heavy and also adds in a slight touch of black metal, the production has a very dark, raw and heavy sound while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion St. Bastard are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Light Inverted" and "Rift". 8 out of 10.
