Whitehorse/Progression/At A Loss Recordings/2011 CD Review

Whitehorse are a band from Australia that mixes doom, sludge, drone and death metal together with some black metal influences and this is a review of their 2011 album "OProgression" which was released by At A Loss Recordings.

Drums are mostly slow to midpaced drumming with not much in the way of fast playing or blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tonw with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound very powerful with some heavy and doomy riffs.

Rhythm guitars range from slow to midpaced riffing that combines the heaviest elements of sludge, doom, drone and death metal with a great amount of noisy distortion and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.

Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls mixed in with some high pitched black metal/sludge screams, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark and heavy sound to it.

In my opinion Whitehorse are a very good drone/sludge/doom/death metal band and if you are a fan of bands that mix these styles together, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mechanical Disintregration" and "Time Worn Regression". RECEMMONDED BUY.
