Corrections House are a band that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style a mixture of industrial and doom metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Last City Zero" which was released by Neurot Recordings.
"Serve or Survive" begins with some industrial sounds and powerful bass guitars and a few seconds later melodic vocals make their way into the song and then the music gets heavier and adds in some aggressive vocals as well as mixing in some programmed beats.
"Bullets And Graves" begins with some programmed beats, heavy guitar and bass riffs along with some aggressive industrial style vocals and the song is less than 3 minutes long.
"Party Leg And Three Fingers" begins with some industrial/noise style sound effects which lead up to some heavy doom metal guitar and bass riffs and a minute later programmed beats and melodic vocals make their way into the song and a few seconds later they start getting more aggressive sounding while also keeping around the melodic parts and towards the end there is a brief use of saxophones.
"Run Through The Night" begins with some acoustic guitars and industrial sounds along with some synths which leads up to some melodic vocals and after awhile you can hear alot of distorted background noises along with some spoken word parts.
"Dirt Poor And Mentally Ill" begins with some bass guitars, melodic vocals and drum programming which lead up to some heavy guitar riffs and industrial vocals and after awhile the music starts adding in some atmospheric synths as well as some spoken word parts.
'Hallows Of the Stream" begins with some programmed beats, clean guitars and saxophones which lead s up to some melodic vocals and the song closes with some drone sounds.
"Last City Zero" begins with some clean guitars and sound effects and a few seconds later spoken word parts make their way into the song and towards the end there is a brief use of melodic chanting.
"Drapes Hung By Jesus" begins with some drone sound effects which also start mixing in some harsh noise elements along with some programming that brings the industrial sounds to the song as well as some aggressive vocals and heavy guitar riffs which also utilize some melody and the song closes with some saxophones and harsh vocals.
Song lyrics cover darkness, negative and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Corrections House and if you are a fan of industrial and doom metal, you should check out t his album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Serve or Survive" "Party Leg And Three Fingers" "Dirt Poor And Mentally Ill" and "Drapes Hung By Jesus". RECOMMENDED BUY.
