A very slow and heavy doom metal sound starts off the album and also gives the music a dark atmosphere and a few seconds later grim screams are added into the music that also gives the music more of a black metal feeling and when solos and leads are added into the music they are very dark, melodic and depressive sounding.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and you can also hear some deep growls being added into certain sections of the recording and the guitar riffs also use a decent amount of melody at times and you can also hear a small amount of clean playing and melodic chants in certain sections of the recording while a later track also brings in a brief use of spoken word samples and all of the songs stick to a very slow, musical direction.
War Iron plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal that is very slow, dark and heavy and also adds a touch of black metal in the vocals to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover darkness, death, war and occultism themes.
In my opinion War Iron are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and doom metal with a touch of black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Summon Demon, Scream The Abyss" and "From Napalm Afar". 8 out of 10.
