Wailin Storms are a band from Texas that plays a mixture of doom metal, punk and noise rock and this is a review of their 2015 album "One Foot In the Flesh Grave" which was released by Magic Bullet Records.
Ritualistic sounding synths and drum beats start off the album along with some clean guitars a few seconds later as well as some melodic vocals that seem to be very heavily influenced by Glen Danzig which also leads up to a heavier musical direction that also uses a great amount of melody and the music is heavily rooted in the 80's.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and on the later songs more noise rock elements are incorporated in the music and some songs also mix in influences of punk and goth in with the heaviness of proto doom while also sounding very modern at the same time and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they also bring more melodies onto the recording and clean playing also makes a return on some of the tracks as the album progresses and there is also a brief use of blast beats.
Wailin Storms plays a musical style that has some of the doom and stoner metal heaviness and mixes it in with punk, goth and noise rock along with a melodic vocal approach to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and morbid themes.
In my opinion Wailin Storms are a very great sounding mixture of doom metal, punk, and noise rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Don't Forget the Sun" "Mystery Girl" and "German Fur Tails". 8 out of 10.
