Loincloth are a band with members from both Virginia and North Carolina that plays an instrumental mixture of sludge and progressive metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Psalm Of The Morbid Whore" which will be released in September by Southern Lord Records.
A very heavy sludge metal sound starts off the album along with some grooves and melodies and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the music is an instrumental direction.
When guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic direction while a great amount of prog metal elements can be heard and most of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction along with a brief use of drones and the music always sticks to a heavier direction and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Loincloth plays a musical style that takes the heavier side of prog metal and mixes it in with the heaviness of sludge and doom metal to create a sound of their own while also keeping everything instrumental and the production sounds very professional.
In my opinion Loincloth are a very great sounding instrumental mixture of prog and sludge metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Necro Fucking Satanae" Morbid Whore" "Sigil Ov Five Horns" and "Ibex(To Burn In Hell Is To Refine)". 8 out of 10.
