00y 18 are a band from Austria that plays an instrumental form of music which combines sludge, doom metal and post rock together and this is a review of t heir self released 2013 ep "Stahlstadt".
Drum programming ranges from slow to mid paced beats which never get fast, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine doom metal, sludge, drone and post rock together to create a sound of their own and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all absent from t his recording with the music being all instrumental, while the song themes revolve around dark concepts, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are presented on t his ep.
In my opinion 00y 18 are a very great sounding hybrid of drone, doom, sludge and post rock and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Linz". RECOMMENDED BUY.
