This is a review of a split album between Canada's Algoma and Chronobot which will be released in April by Dead beat Media and we will start off the review with Algoma a band that plays a mixture of sludge, doom metal and noise rock.
Their side of the split starts out with distorted reverb's along with some tortured voices in the background before going into a heavier musical direction along with some aggressive vocals and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on their side of the recording while the riffing mixes in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal while elements of noise rock are also a very huge part of the songs and both of the tracks stick to a very slow musical direction and the last track is very long and epic in length, the production on their side of the recording sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, despair and depressive themes.
In my opinion Alogma are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, doom metal and noise rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Pthisis".
Next up is Chronobot a band that plays a band that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal.
Their side of the split starts out with clean laying that is more closer to 70's rock/metal along with some psychedelic sounding synths before adding in drums which then takes the music into a heavier sludge/doom metal direction along with some retro melodies and growling vocals and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and they also mix in a lot of stoner rock elements and all 3 of the songs stick to a slow musical direction and the last track brings in a small amount of spoken vocals, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Weed and Space themes.
In my opinion Chronobot are a very great sounding mixture of sludge,doom/death metal and stoner rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Jerry Can".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of sludge, stoner and doom metal. 8 out of 10.
