This is a review of a 3 way split album between Poland's Fleshworld France's Gazers and Italy's Viscera/// which will be released on October 14th by Unquiet Records and we will start off the review with Fleshworld a band that plays a mixture of post metal and hardcore with elements of black metal..
Drum beats and a distorted sound starts off their side of the split before adding in melodic riffs and spoken word parts as well as a small amount of guitar leads and when vocals are added into the music they are high pitched screams that have a black metal feeling to them while still being a bit more influenced by hardcore and sludge metal and the band also brings in a great amount of post elements to their 3 tracks and their last song is close to 2 minutes in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Fleshworld plays a very slow and melodic mixture of post metal and hardcore with some black metal elements and while this is not a style I would regularly listen to I still feel the band is very good at what they are doing, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes and are written in Polish.
In my opinion Fleshworld are a very decent sounding mixture of post metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Petla".
Next up is Gazers a band that plays a mixture of black metal, post hardcore, screamo and crust.
Ambient style sounds start off their side of the split along with some clean playing and after a minute the music starts going for more of a heavy sound stat mixes screamo with post hardcore as well as having some melodic leads that are more in the metal vein which also leads up to some death and black metal style vocals being added into the music and after awhile the band starts bringing in a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts.
Gazers bring in many different elements in their sound from black metal, post hardcore, screamo and a touch of crust to create a sound that stand s out on its own, the production sounds very dark and powerful while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Gazers are a very decent sounding mixture of post hardcore, black metal, screamo and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Decline".
Closing the split is Viscera/// a band that plays a psychedelic form of sludge metal.
A very dark, melodic and heavy sound starts off their side of the split along with some high pitched screams which are in more of a sludge direction and you can also hear some elements of psychedelia and post metal in their musical sound and after awhile the music starts to speed up in certain sections of their side of the recording as well as bringing in a small amount of blast beats and on their second track they add in some clean singing.
Viscera//// takes a a style of sludge metal and mixes it with some psychedelic and the melody of post rock to create their own sound, the production sounds very heavy while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Vicera//// are a very decent sounding mixture of sludge, post metal and psychedelia and i you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Nobody's Diary".
In conclusion i feel this is a very decent sounding split and I would recommend it to fans of the post forms of black metal, sludge and hardcore. 7/5 out of 10.
