Throes are a band from Austria that plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Koro".
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album and the riffs also bring in melodies at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly sludge style screams and when guitar leads are utilized they also bring even more melodies into the songs.
A couple of the tracks are long and epic in length and when clean singing is brought onto the recording they bring in a touch of stoner metal and most of the songs stick to a very slow and heavy musical direction while also only speeding up for a few seconds and on the last track clean playing is added into the music along with a small amount of saxophones.
Throes plays a style of sludge and doom metal that is very melodic yet heavy at the same time while also mixing in a touch of stoner metal, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Throes are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Zepsuta" and "Planet Lobotomy". 8 out of 10.
