Allfather are a band from the united Kingdom that plays a mixture of sludge, doom metal, and hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Bless The Earth With Fire" which will be released in April by Static Tension Recordings.
Drums start off the ep before going into more of a heavy, distorted and melodic musical direction that also brings in elements of hardcore along with some deep and aggressive sludge vocals and after awhile guitar solos and leads start making their presence known on the recording and the music also adds in screaming vocals at times.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of both slow and mid paced parts and there is also a brief use of clean playing and the heavier parts also bring in the energy of punk while the hardcore elements of the bands musical style go back to the early 90's east coast style of the genre and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length..
Allfather plays a musical style that takes sludge and doom metal and mixes it with New York hardcore and a touch of punk to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and angry themes.
In my opinion Allfather are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, doom metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Bloody Noose" and "Death, And Hell Followed With Him". 8 out of 10.
