Snake Tongue are a band from Sweden that plays a mixture of punk, hardcore and extreme metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Raptor's Breath" which was released by The Sign Records.
Distorted amp sounds start off the album along with a powerful bass guitar sound a few seconds later which also leads up to a heavier musical direction which also introduces aggressive hardcore screams onto the recording and when the music speeds up it starts adding in more of a crossover style between metal and punk.
Elements of thrash can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also mixes both old school and modern hardcore together and the riffs can also be very melodic at times and as the album progresses clean play can also be heard briefly and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and some songs also add in a touch of post hardcore and there is also a brief use of blast beats in the faster sections of the songs and acoustic guitars are added onto the last track.
Snake Tongue plays a musical style that takes a very aggressive style of hardcore and mixes it with extreme metal and a touch of punk to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, violent and angry themes.
In my opinion Snake Tongue are a very great sounding mixture of hardcore and extreme metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Raptor's Breath" "Altar" "Ghost Dance" and "The Narcissist". 8 out of 10.
