False Gods are a band from New York that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge, and doom metal with a touch of hardcore and this is a review of their self released 2016 ep "Wasteland" which will be released in April.
Drum beats start off the ep before going into a heavier doom metal direction where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording along with some melodies also being utilized at times while t he vocals are in the more aggressive hardcore and sludge vein and you can also hear a touch of stoner metal in the songs.
Throughout the recording you can hear musical influences ranging from the modern day all the way back to the early 70's and they also bring in a touch of New York style into the songs which really shows up when the music speeds up a bit and the whole ep remains heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
False Gods plays a musical style which takes sludge, stoner, doom metal and hardcore and mixes them together to create some very heavy sounding music, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover angry and real life themes.
In my opinion False Gods are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, stoner, doom metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Despot" and "Grant Me Revenge". 8 out of 10.
