Thera Roya are a band from Brooklyn, New York that plays a mixture of sludge and post metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "Masterful Universe" which will be released in September.
Melodic riffing starts off the ep before adding in the heaviness of sludge metal along with some aggressive sludge style screams a few seconds later while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music also adds in the fuzzy stoner rock style at times.
A great amount of doom metal elements can be heard in the bands musical style while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with the first track being very long and epic in length and spoken word parts are added onto the second song to give the music more of a drugged out atmosphere and all of the music sticks to a very slow direction along with some elements of post rock.
Thera Roya creates another recording that remains true to t he sludge and post metal mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording, while the lyrics cover hopeless, confused and nihilistic themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Thera Roya and if you are a fan of sludge and post metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Static Transmission". 8 out of 10.
