Royal Talons/Self Titled/ConSouling Sounds/2012 EP Review


  Royal  Talons  are  a  band  from  Denver,  Colorado  that  plays  a  mixture  of  stoner,  doom,  drone and  sludge  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of   their  self  titled  2012  ep  which  was  released  by  ConSouling  Sounds.

  Drums  are  all  slow  playing  with  no  fast  drumming  or  blast  beats  being  present  on  this  recording,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  are  all  slow  riffs  that  combine  sludge,  drone,  stoner  and  doom  metal  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing,   while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  stoner/doom  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  range  from  clean  singing  stoner  doom  metal  vocals  to  high  pitched  screams  which  gives  the  music  a  black  metal  feeling  along  with  a  brief  use  of  samples,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,   powerful,  heavy,  dark  and  professional  sound  where you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording  with  the  songs  being long  and  epic  in  length.

  In   my  opinion  Royal  Talons  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  stoner,  sludge,  drone  and  doom metal  with  elements  of  black  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Shark  Skull"  and  "D-Day  Spell".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
