A good amount of reverb and distortion starts off the album along with some spoken word samples which leads up to a very heavy sludge metal sound along with some high pitched screams and you can also hear some elements of doom metal in the bands musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
On some of the other tracks the music goes into a mid paced direction and also mixes in the raw energy of hardcore punk and when solos and leads are utilized they are very distorted and noisy sounding and there are also a couple of tracks that are very long and epic in length and the whole album also sticks to a very dark and heavy musical direction.
Nightslug plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in sludge metal but also brings in a touch of crust, hardcore punk and noise rock to create a sound of their own, the production has a very dark, raw and heavy sound while the lyrics cover violent, angry and pissed off themes.
In my opinion Nightslug are a very great sounding mixture of sludge metal, crust and hardcore punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Loathe" "Under A Bane" and "Tainted Throne". 8 out of 10.
