Tile are a band from Pennsylvania that plays noise rock with elements of stoner and doom metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "You Had A Friend in Pennsylvania" which was released by Limited Appeal Records.
The album s tarts out with some drums and heavy guitar riffs as well as some melodic yet aggressive vocals and you can hear some heavy doom metal parts being mixed in with noise rock and on the second song the bass guitars get a lot more powerful sounding and you can also hear reverb noises being added in.
As the album progresses the music starts getting more diverse while also having a good amount of melody and the music always stays very dark and heavy sounding as well as mixing in influences from garage and punk rock and on the 6th song the music gets more doom metal influenced and you can also hear elements of sludge being added into the screams.
On this album Tile create some very good quality noise rock and mix it in with the heaviness of doom and sludge metal while also having a small amount of stoner rock influences without resorting to the more mainstream side of that genre and you can hear the rawness and primal aggression of punk and garage rock on this record as well.
Song lyrics cover dark and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Tile are a very decent sounding noise rock band with elements of doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Half Tooth" "Lazy Mannequin" "Snake Woman" and "Night Crawlwr". 7/5 out of 10.
