Sarvas are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge, groove and doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "The Throne" which will be released in April by inverse Records.
Dark sound effects start off the ep before going into more of a heavy and melodic musical direction which is in more of the sludge and doom metal area and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording while the vocals are in more of a very aggressive groove metal direction.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are very dark and melodic sounding and acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a small amount of spoken word parts and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length and the whole ep also sticks to a slow to mid paced musical direction from beginning to ending of the recording and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Sarvas plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in sludge, doom and stoner metal while also mixing in the melody of groove metal to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Sarvas are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, sludge, doom and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Steadfast". 8 out of 10.
