V are a band from Sweden t hat plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Pathogenisis" which will be released on November 8th by Suicide Records.
Atmospheric soundscapes start off the album along with some clean guitars a few seconds later which also leads to a heavier doom metal direction while the vocals add in sludge style growls while elements of post metal are also utilized at times and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Clean singing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses clean guitars also make a return in certain sections of the recording and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid tempo direction as well as spoken word parts also being utilized briefly.
V plays a musical style that takes sludge, doom and post metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Social political and nihilism themes.
In my opinion V are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, doom and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band, RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "At The End Of Your Time" and "Suspended Animation". 8 out of 10.
