71TonMan are a band from Poland that plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Earthwreck" which will be released in September by Black Bow Records.
Clean yet distorted playing starts off the album before going into a heavier musical direction and after awhile death metal growls make their presence known while the music also mixes in the heaviness of sludge and high pitched screams are also used quite a bit throughout the recording.
Dark and depressive sounding melodies can be found in some of the riffing while all of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with some drones being added into into certain sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them, on a couple of the tracks spoken word parts are used briefly and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and on the last track the music speeds up a little bit and also adds in a small amount of blast beats.
71TonMan plays a musical style that mixes the heaviest forms of sludge and doom metal to create a very heavy recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover a fictional post apocalyptic world.
In my opinion 71TonMan are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Negative" and "Spiral". 8 out of 10.
