White Widows are a band from New York that plays a mixture of sludge metal and hardcore and this is a review of their self titled 2013 album which was released by Sacrament Music.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine sludge metal and hardcore to create a sound of their own along with some dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars are very raw and primitive sounding hardcore guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly sludge style screams mixed with hardcore style growls, while the lyrics cover hateful and everyday themes, as for the production it h as a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on t his recording.
In my opinion White Widows are a very great sounding hybrid of sludge metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Slow Burn" and "Sin Taxes". RECOMMENDED BUY.
