Siberian Hell Sounds are a band from Australia that plays a very raw form of blackened crust/grind and this is a review of their 2016 ep :Svengali" which was released by Art As Catharsis Records.
Spoken word samples and amp sounds start off the ep before going into more of a dark yet melodic direction and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling along with some high pitched black metal screams.
Crust and hardcore style shouting is also used on a regular basis and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some d beat elements and the faster sections of the tracks also brings in the raw energy of grindcore and spoken words are also used on other songs as well as well as a small amount of death metal growls and the music also adds in touches of noise and power violence.
Siberian Hell Sounds plays a musical style that takes raw black metal, crust, grind and post hardcore and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark, raw and heavy while the lyrics are a concept album based upon the sacrifice of one's own body to the mind of the other.
In my opinion Siberian Hell Sounds are a very great sounding blackened crust/grind band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE 'Seed" and "Svengali". 8 out of 10.
