Bovine are a band from the U.K that plays sludge with some space and prog elements and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Sun Never Sets On The British Empire" which was released by FDA Rekotz.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with no fast playing or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced sludge riffs that also utilize elements of space music and prog to create a sound of their own with some dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing at times and there a re little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add some more prog elements to the album.
Vocals range from sludge style screams, clean singing and some spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Bovine are a very great sounding sludge band with space music and prog elements and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ghosts Chair" "Heroes Are What" "The Battle Of The Sinkhole" and "Military Wife". RECOMMENDED BUY.
