Seven Sisters Of Sleep are a band from Southern California that plays a mixture of doom and sludge with elements of death, black metal, grindcore and d beat hardcore and this is a review of their 2016 album "Ezekiel's Hags" which was released by Relapse Records.
A very dark and ritualistic sound starts off the album before adding in blast beats and black metal screams and the music also mixes in a lot of grind, crust and d beats eleemnts while the vocals also mix in death metal growls at times and when the music slows down it goes for more of a sludge and doom metal direction.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and they also bring in a brief use of atmospheric sounds and some of the tracks are very long, epic in length and there are also some riffs that also bring in a small amount of melodies and when guitar leads are utilized they add in a touch of stoner metal and the vocals also mix in sludge style screams quite a bit throughout the recording and one track also brings in a brief use of cello's
Seven Sisters Of Sleep plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in sludge and doom metal while also mixing in the brutality and aggression of death, black metal and d beat to create something very dark and original sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Seven Sisters Of Sleep and if you are a fan of sludge, doom metal or any other extreme musical style, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Denounce" "Brother's River" Sacred Prostitute" and "Bastard Son". 8 out of 10.
