Devil Gone Public are a band from Florida that plays a mixture of southern, stoner, sludge and groove metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Smokehound".
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the album along with some elements of groove metal while t he lyrics are done in more of a southern metal clean singing style while also having its aggressive moments with a few screams and the solos and leads also bring in more of a melodic style of metal and rock.
Throughout the recording you can hear the heaviness of sludge and all of t he musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with a brief use of bass leads and there is also a brief use of female vocals and spoken word parts and as the album progresses elements of stoner rock are utilized on a great amount of tracks and when the music speeds up briefly a small amount of blast beats can be heard and the whole album also remains hard and heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
Devil Gone Public plays a musical style that takes sludge, southern, stoner and groove metal and mixes it together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Pot Smoking and Real Life themes.
In my opinion Devil Gone Public are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, stoner, southern and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Aether Way" "Satan Hold My Hand" "Poison the Well" and "Galatic Amnesia". 8 out of 10.
