Hissing are a band from Seattle, Washington that recently had an ep reviewed in this zine and plays a mixture of black, death and doom metal and this is a review of another self titled ep from them which was released by Southern Lord.
A very fast and raw black metal sound starts off the ep along with some bestial death metal growls while the slower sections are very heavily influenced by doom metal and the riffs also bring in a great amount of morbid sounding melodies and the songs also bring in elements of sludge and the music is heavily rooted in the 90's.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the songs also b ring in elements of war metal and both of the songs stick to a very heavy sound without ever having a soft or weak moment.
Hissing creates another recording that mixes black, doom and death together while also adding in more bestial moments this time around, the production sounds very dark, heavy and old school while the lyrics cover agoraphobia, urban decay and incarceration.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Hissing and if you are a fan of black, death and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, yuo should c heck out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Husk". 8 out of 10.
