Thermate are a band from Finland that plays a very heavy form of stoner rock and this is a review of their self released 2013 demo,
A very heavy and melodic retro stoner rock sound starts off the demo along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and when vocals are added into the music they bring in even more of a 70's heavy rock influence into the music and the solos also continue in the same tradition.
On the second track clean playing is added into the music before making a return back to a heavier direction which also brings in elements of doom metal and the song also mixes the clean and heavy parts together which also gives the music more of a psychedelic edge and on the last track you can hear a blues influence being mixed in with the heavy rock sound
Thermate plays a style of stoner rock that is very retro yet done in a more modern fashion and you can hear a lot of metal influences in the bands musical sound, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes that seem to be drug induced.
In my opinion Thermate are a very great sounding stoner rock band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Mystic East". 8 out of 10.
