Vermillion Whiskey are a band from Louisiana that plays a mixture of sludge, southern and stoner metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Spirit Of Tradition" which will be released in February by 10 South Productions.
A very hard and heavy musical sound starts off the album and adds in a classic rock feeling along with some southern rock style vocals a few seconds later and you can hear the heaviness of metal in the guitar riffing while the solos and leads are done in more of a stoner rock style and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Elements of proto metal can be heard while the music adds in a more modern touch that also mixes in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and one track also brings in a brief use of clean guitars and all of the songs stick to a very slow or mid paced musical direction.
Vermillion Whiskey plays a musical style that could be considered a modern day form of southern rock with the sludge, stoner, and doom metal influences giving the songs a heavier edge, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Vermillion Whiskey are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, southern and stoner metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Past Is Dead" and "One Night". 8 out of 10.
