Ramlord are a band from New Hampshire that has been featured before in this zine and plays a raw mixture of black metal, crust, stenchcore and sludge and this is a review of their self titled 2015 7 inch which will be released by Broken Limbs Recordings.
Clean playing starts off the ep giving the music both a psychedelic and post rock influence and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when the music gets heavier it brings in a very raw black metal with high pitched screams as well as mixing in crust style growls and a touch of post hardcore.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos that are utilized are very melodic sounding and you can hear a lot of sludge and doom metal elements in the slower riffs and both of the tracks also utilize a great amount of bass leads.
Ramlord takes both the post and raw style of black metal and mixes them with crust, d beat, sludge and melodic hardcore to create the musical style that is to be heard on both of the songs, the production sound s very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark and negative themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ramlord and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this 7 inch. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Fog of Neglect". 8 out of 10.
