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 sounds 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.
