Viscera are a band from Italy that started out as a grindcore band but evolved more into an experimental drone/doom metal band with this recording and this is a review of their 2011 album "2 As Zeitgeist Becomes Profusion Of The I" which was released by ConSouling Sounds in the year of 2011.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the sound effects bring elements of drone, ambient and experimental to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced, to fast riffs that combine doom, drone, experimental and post rock together to create a sound of their own with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing as well as some soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very melodic sounding post rock guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly clean singing vocals with some high pitched screams which brings a black metal feeling to the recording as well as a brief use of spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover dark and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound with t he songs being long and epic in length where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Viscera are a very great sounding hybrid of experimental, drone, doom and post rock and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ballad Of Barry L" and "Um ad-Dunia". RECOMMENDED BUY.
