Lunatic Hooker are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of death metal, grindcore, and sludge and this is a review of their 2017 album "Embracing The Filth" which will be released in April by Black Bow Records.
Distorted drones along with some powerful sounding bass guitars start off the album before going into a heavier direction and also introducing death metal growls onto the recording and when the music speeds up elements of grindcore along with brutal blast beats and high pitched screams can be heard.
A great amount of 90's influences can be heard in the bands musical style while the solos and leads are done in a very old school death metal style and melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the slower sections of the tracks bringing in elements of sludge and horror movie samples can also be heard briefly and all of the songs stick to a heavy direction.
Lunatic Hooker plays a musical style that takes death metal, grindcore and sludge and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover horror, gore, and violence themes.
In my opinion Lunatic Hooker are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, grindcore, and sludge and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "My God Is Bigger Than Yours" "Unearthed Dead Children" "Cult Chaos" and "Sarlac'. 8 out of 10.
