The Hippie Revolt are a 1 man band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin that plays an instrumental mixture of sludge, doom metal, proto metal and psychedelic and this is a review of their self released 2011 album "Lucid Satanik Distrotions.
Drums programming ranges from slow to mid paced beats, while the keyboards bring a very psychedelic and 60's sound to the album, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range slow, to mid paced riffs that combine proto, sludge and doom metal with 60's psychedelic rock to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very old school sounding psychedelic rock guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly spoken word samples taking from movies along with a brief use of clean singing, while the song themes cover drugs and the occult, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the album with a couple of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion The Hippie Revolt are a very great sounding hybrid of proto, sludge, doom metal and psychedelic rock and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Acidland" "She Killed In Ecstasy" "Names Of The Devil" and "Hooked". RECOMMENDED BUY.
