Finland's Do have returned with a new recording that continues their mixture of stoner, sludge, and doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "Astral Death/Birth".
A very distorted amp sound starts off the ep along with some heavy yet melodic doom metal riffs a few seconds later that also mixes in the heaviness of sludge and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and after awhile growls and screams start to make their presence known.
Both of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the solos and leads add in touches of stoner metal and on the second track clean playing can be heard while still being in somewhat of a distorted direction as well as some synths, psychedelic elements and melodic chants and both tracks stick to a slow direction.
Do creates another recording that remains true to the stoner, sludge and doom metal mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics are a concept album that has a metaphysical and apocalyptic content to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from DO and if you a re a fan of sludge, stoner, and doom metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Astral Death". 8 out of 10.
