Radien are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of punk, drone, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Maa" which was released by Bunkerri Records.
Powerful sounding bass guitars and distorted drones start off the ep and both of the tracks are very long and epic in length and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the guitar riffing and after a few minutes the music goes into a heavier musical direction along with some high pitched sludge style screams.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very distorted fashion and the music also mixes in the raw energy of punk rock while both of the tracks remain very slow while also adding in a small amount of synths
Radien plays a musical style that takes punk, drone, sludge and doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Finnish and cover dark themes.
In my opinion Radien are a very great sounding mixture of punk, drone, sludge and doom metal and you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Vimeinen". 8 out of 10.
