Horseneck are a band from California that plays a mixture of post hardcore and sludge metal and this is a review of t heir self released 2017 album "Heavy Trip" which will be released in February.
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the album along with some synths that give the music more of a 60's and 70's rock vibe and after awhile aggressive sludge style vocals are added onto the recording while melodic singing is also used at times and the solos and leads also bring in a great amount of melody.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the riffing also adds in elements of stoner rock and post hardcore and samples are also used at times and you can also hear a great amount of melody in the guitar riffing and one track also brings in clean playing and slide guitars before returning back to a heavier direction and the music also speeds up briefly.
Hoseneck plays a musical style that takes stoner rock, sludge metal, and post hardcore and ixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Horseneck are a very great sounding mixture of post hardcore and sludge metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Michael Caine" "Hangman" "No Gods" and "Plow The Roads". 8 out of 10.
