Raum Kingdom are a band from Ireland that plays a mixture of post metal and doom and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2014 ep.
A very dark, melodic and heavy post metal sound starts off the ep and a few seconds alter aggressive sludge style screams start finding their way into the bands musical style and they also mix them in with some melodic clean singing and you can also hear some elements of the post genres of rock and hardcore in the songs at times.
Clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording while the main focus is more on a dark, melodic and very heavy musical direction and on the 3rd track a small amount of sound effects and spoken word parts are brought into the music and dominate the track while the next song sees the band going back to its more regular sound and the alst rack is very long and epic in length.
Raum Kingdom plays a very melodic style of post metal on this recording that also bring s in the heaviness of hardcore, sludge and doom metal to create the 5 songs you hear on this recording, the production sound s very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover darkness and despair themes.
In my opinion Raum Kingdom are a very great sounding mixture of doom, sludge, and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wounds" and "This Sullen Hope". 8 out of 10.
