Herem are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "III" which will be released in December by Inverse Records.
Distorted amp sounds start off the album before going into a heavier doom metal direction a few seconds later along with some death metal growls and sludge style screams making their presence known a few seconds later and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Stoner rock elements can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and when solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and one track also brings in a brief use of clean guitars and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction and clean vocals are added onto the last track.
Herem plays a musical style that takes sludge, stoner and doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Herem 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 "Snakes Of The Third Moon" and "Edge of the World". 8 out of 10.
