This is a review of a split ep between Montreal, Canada's The Great Sabatini and Godstopper which was released by No List Records and we will start off the review with The Great Sabbatini a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of sludge, doom metal and noise rock.
Their side of the split starts out with spoken word samples that are also used on other tracks before going into a heavier musical direction which also brings in elements of sludge and doom metal into the music and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
Some of the riffs also use melodies and the vocals have a very melodic yet rough edge to them and you can also hear elements of noise rock and female vocals are used on the last track along with some folk instruments, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover dark and raw life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from the Great Sabbatinni and if you are a fan of sludge, doom metal and noise rock, you should check out their side of t he split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I'm Not The Man Of The Hour" and "The Ear Collector".
Next up is Godstopper a band that plays a mixture of sludge and noise rock.
Their side of the split starts out with a very hard and heavy noise rock sound that also brings in a decent amount of melody while also mixing in the heaviness of sludge metal and the vocals are done in a clean singing fashion and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads are also very melodic and both of the songs stick to either a sow or mid paced musical direction and there is also a brief use of g rowls, the production sounds very professional while t he lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Godstopper are a very great sounding mixture of noise rock and sludge metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "A Prayer".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of noise rock, sludge and doom metal. 8 out of 10.
