False Gods are a band from New York that h as been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal with some elements of southern metal, thrash and hardcore and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "Reports From Oblivion" which will be released in August.
Distorted amp sounds start off the ep along with some drum beats which also leads to a heavier direction along with some angry hardcore vocals being added onto the recording a few seconds later while the riffs also use a decent amount of melody along with the slower sections of the songs being influenced by sludge and doom metal.
When guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and the music also incorporates elements of southern and thrash metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of sloe and mid paced parts along with the vocals also using a semi melodic tone briefly along with a brief use of sludge style screams and the music always remains heavy.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from False Gods and if you are a fan of hardcore, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spirit World". 8 out of 10.
