Goatburner are a duo from Finland that plays a mixture of sludge, death metal and power violence and this is a review of their 2019 album "Extreme Conditions" which will be released in September by Time to Kill Records.
A very distorted yet heavy sound starts off the album along with some high pitched screams and slow yet heavy riffing which brings elements of sludge metal onto the recording. When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard as well with some influences of power violence and grindcore.
The songs also show an influence of 90's era Swedish and Finish death metal which also gives the music more of an old school feeling. Melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the music sticks to a heavier direction.
Goatburner plays a musical style that takes sludge, death metal and power violence and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the negative and disturbing sides of the chaotic forces of nature we have to live in today.
In my opinion Goatburner are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, death metal and power violence and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Time To Burn" "Violent Redeemer" "Get Sick And Die" and "Wave Of Doom". 8 out of 10.
