Brett Netson & Snakes are a band from Boise, Idaho that plays a mixture of metal, drone, stoner, psychedelic and garage rock and this is a review of his self released 2015 ep "Scavenger Cult" which will be released in March.
A very distorted yet modern psychedelic rock sound starts off the ep along with melodic guitar leads that are very heavily rooted in the 70's along with some clean singing vocals a few seconds later and you can hear a lot of grunge and stoner rock elements in the music and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
At times the music can be experimental along with a couple of the tracks being long and epic in length and at times a small amount of post rock elements can be heard along with some of the sound effects having a drone feeling to them and all 3 of the tracks also bring in a great amount of guitar solos and leads and the last track also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts.
Brett Nelson & Snake s takes the heaviness of metal and mixes it elements of stoner, garage and psychedelia to create some music that is very hard to categorize, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Brett Netson & Friends are a very great sounding mixture of metal, drone, stoner, psychedelic and garage rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Sharpening Knives". 8 out of 10.
