This is a review of a split ep between Connecticut's Sea Of Bones and New Hampshire's Ramlord which will be released in September by Broken Limbs and we will start off the review with Sea Of Bones a band that plays a mixture of funeral doom metal, sludge and drone.
Their side of the split starts out with a very dark yet heavy doom metal side along with some melodic riffing also being utilized at times and their track is over 10 minutes in length and also mixes in some of sludge heaviness and after awhile death metal growls make their presence known on the track.
The whole song also remains true to a very slow musical direction while some of the vocals also add in a touch of hardcore along with a small amount of grim screams that seem to be influenced by black metal and towards the end melodic guitar leads are utilized, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding track from Sea Of Bones and if you are a fan of funeral doom metal and sludge, you should check out their side of the split.
Next up is Ramlord a band that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black metal and crust.
Their side of the split starts out with melodic riffing and clean playing before adding in a doom metal influenced sound and black metal screams as well as some death metal growls and after awhile the music gets more mid paced as well as adding in elements of crust and d beat and you can also hear all of t he musical instruments that are present on their song and there is also a brief use of melodic guitar leads, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover occult themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Ramlord and if you are a fan of black metal and crust, you should check out their song.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of sludge, doom, crust, and black metal. 8 out of 10.
