Shambles are a band from Thailand that plays a mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their ep "Primitive Death Trance" which will be released in 2018 by Blood Harvest.
A very dark yet heavy doom metal sound starts off the ep along with some morbid sounding melodies while some of the tracks are long and epic in length and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard as well as most of the vocals being deep death metal growls.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's while some of the riffing also captures the guitar tone of sludge metal along with some of the vocals also getting very guttural at times and throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music always remains heavy.
Shambles plays a style of doom/death metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's era, the production sounds very dark and old school while the lyrics cover Darkness and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Shambles are a very great sounding old school mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Daemon" and "Primitive Death Trance'. 8 out of 10.
