Missiles Of October are a band from Belgium that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of sludge, stoner, punk, and noise rock and this is a review of their 2016 album "Better Days" which was released by Pogo Records.
Powerful sounding bass guitars start off the album along with some drum beats which also leads up to a heavier noise rock direction along with sludge style screams and the music also mixes in the energy of punk rock while also bringing in a decent amount of melody and there is also a great amount of influences from 80's to modern era.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while elements of stoner rock can also be heard at times and a small amount of blast beats can also be heard during the faster sections of the songs and the tracks also mix in a great amount of bass guitar leads and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length and the album also remains very hard and heavy from beginning to end.
Missiles Of October creates another recording that remains true to t he sludge, stoner, punk, and noise rock mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover angry and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Missiles Of October and if you are a fan of sludge, stoner, noise, and punk rock, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "State Of Crisis" "Better Days" "Chainsaw" and "Two Feet In Sludge". 8 out of 10.
