This is a review of a split ep between Belgium's Prisoner 639 and Netherlands's Throw Me In The Crater which was released by EveryDayHate and we will start off the review with Prisoner 639 a duo that plays a very raw and primitive form of power violence.
Their side of the split starts out with a very distorted drone along with some spoken word parts a few seconds later which also leads up to bass and drums making their presence known in the song that also brings in a touch of sludge and after awhile the music speeds up and brings in blast beats and growling vocals along with a great amount of grindcore and power violence elements and the track also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, the production sounds very raw while the lyrics cover angry themes.
In my opinion Prisoner 639 are a very great sounding power violence band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split.
Next up is Throw Me In The Crater a band that plays a very heavy form of sludge.
Their side of the split starts out with drum beats and distorted amp sounds before going into a heavier sludge and doom metal direction and melodies can also be heard at times and after awhile screams are added into the song and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and melodies can also be heard at times, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover angry themes.
In my opinion Throw Me in The Crater are a very great sounding sludge metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their song.
In conclusion I think this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of power violence and sludge. 8 out of 10.
