This is a review of a split cassette between Arizona's Twingiant and Washington's Into The Storm which was released by Tridroid Records and we will start off the review with Twingiant a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays a stoner form of sludge metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a distorted amp sound which leads up to a heavier direction where you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on t heir side of t he recording and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion while also giving the songs more of a retro stoner rock feeling and the vocals are deep sludge style screams and a decent amount of doom metal influences can be heard in the guitar riffing and both of the tracks stick to a slow musical direction, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Twingiant and if you are a fan of stoner or sludge metal, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Poison Control Party Line".
Next up is Into The Storm another band that has been featured before in this zine and plays a progressive mixture of sludge metal and noise rock.
Their side of the split starts out with a very hard and heavy sound that also brings in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal while the vocals are very aggressive while also having a melodic tone to them and the guitar leads also bring in a decent amount of melody and spoken word samples are added onto the second track briefly while both of their songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and the clean guitars gives the songs more of a progressive edge, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Into the Storm and if you are a fan of progressive sludge metal and noise rock, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Ghostmaker".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend it to all fans of sludge metal. 8 out of 10.
