Callus are a band from t he United Kingdom that plays a mixture of stoner, doom and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "Through Blood, Sweat, Piss And Pain".
A soundscape and spoken word samples start off the ep and after the intro the music goes into more of a thrash influenced direction and after awhile aggressive vocals a re added onto the recording the solos and leads also bring in an old school style of extreme metal and there are a lot of 80's influences.
While a lot of the music is rooted in t he past t he stoner, sludge and doom metal elements gives the songs a more modern feeling and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and while the music is mostly slow or mid paced it does have its fast moments and one track also brings in a small amount of clean playing.
Callus plays a musical style that takes thrash, sludge, s toner and doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark a nd apocalyptic themes.
In my opinion Callus are a very great sounding mixture of thrash, stoner, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should c heck out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Chimp Militia" and "The Root Of All Evil". 8 out of 10.
