Author & Punisher are a band from California that plays industrial doom metal with elements of noise, and dubstep and this is a review of their 2013 album "Women & Children" which was released by Seventh Rule Recordings.
Drum programming ranges from slow to mid paced beats, while the synths, programming, and effects bring elements of drone, noise, industrial and dubstep to the recording, as for the bass playing it 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 with industrial and drone to create a very heavy sound of their own and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all industrial style vocals which range from clean singing to more aggressive elements, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound where you can hear all of t he musical instruments that are present on this recording with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Author & Punisher are a very great sounding hybrid of industrial, noise and doom metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Women & Children" "Tame As A Lion" and "Miles From Home". RECOMMENDED BUY.
