Curse The Son are a band from Connecticut that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Isolator" which will be released on March 18th by Snake Charmer Coalition".
A powerful sounding bass guitar starts off the album along with some drum beats and once the music gets heavy and melodic it goes for more of a 70's doom metal style and the vocals are done in a clean singing fashion and the music also alternates between both the heavy and soft parts quite a bit throughout the recording.
A lot of stoner rock elements can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the heaviness of the songs brings in more of a sludge feeling and as the album progresses more psychedelic elements are added into the music along with the bass guitars taking over as a lead instrument and the whole album sticks to a very slow musical direction from beginning to ending of the recording.
Curse The Sun plays a style of doom metal that is very retro in the 70's vein while also bringing in a touch of stoner rock and the heaviness of sludge to create a musical style of their own, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover darkness and hallucinating themes.
In my opinion Curse The Son are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, stoner and doom metal and if you a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Isolator" "Hull Crush Depth" and "Side Effects made Include...". 8/1 out of 10.
