Desert Storm are a band from the United Kingdom that has been featured before in this zine and this is a review of their 2015 album "Omniscient" which was released by Blindsight Records.
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the album along with some elements of 70's rock and a few seconds alter vocals that are both aggressive and melodic are added into t he music and they also give the recording a groove metal feeling and the guitar riffing also brings in a great amount of melody.
You can hear the heaviness of sludge and doom metal in the bands musical style at times along with the album bringing out a southern metal vibe quite a bit throughout the recording while some of the songs also add in small amounts of clean playing into certain sections of the recording and there are also a few tracks that are long and epic in length.
As the album progresses clean singing can be heard at times along with music also adding in elements of psychedelia, blues and folk music and when guitar leads are utilized they bring in even more elements of stoner and 70's rock and some of the alter tracks also bring in small amounts of acoustic guitar playing.
Desert Storm remain true to the stoner rock/metal sound of previous recordings while also adding in psychedelic, blues and folk music elements to take their musical style into a different direction, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life and stoner themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Desert Storm and if you are a fan of stoner rock, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Queen Reefer" "Home" "Bandwagon" and "Collapse Of The Bison Lung". 8 out of 10.
