Ampmandens Dotre are a band from Norway that plays a mixture of sludge and punk and this is a review of their self titled 2015album which was released by Ampmandens Records.
Drum beats and melodic vocals start off the album along with some powerful sounding bass guitar which leads up to high pitched sludge screams becoming a huge part of the recording while also keeping around the clean singing and the riffs also bring in a great mixture of both melody and heaviness.
When guitar leads are utilized they add more melody to the recording and the mid paced sections are heavily influenced by punk rock and the faster sections also bring in the raw energy of that genre and at times the music also brings in a small amount of blast beats and some of the songs also bring in elements of noise and hardcore.
Ampmandens Dotre plays a musical style that takes sludge and punk and mixes it in with a great amount of melody to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover violent, angry and hateful themes.
In my opinion Ampmandens Dotre are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Militant Antifacism" "Black Fetus" "The Killing Of Cedric Williams" and "God Is Not Great". 8 out of 10.
