Steel Hook Prosthesis are a band from Dallas, Texas that plays a mixture of death industrial, power electronics and blackened drone and this is a review of their 2016 album "Calm Morbidity" which will be released on October 28th by Malignant Records.
Atmospheric drones and dark soundscapes start off the album along with some spoken word parts a few seconds later and the music also mixes in a great amount of death industrial elements along with some melodic chants and harsh noises also being utilized at times while some of the vocals have a distorted approach to them.
When high pitched screams are utilized they have a black metal feeling to them while t he deeper vocals are very demonic and evil sounding and elements of ambient can also be heard at times and the songs also bring in a great amount of power electronics and some of the songs are all instrumental and the tracks also bring in a decent amount of variety and a couple of tracks are long and epic in length.
Steel Hook Prosthesis plays a musical style that takes ambient, death industrial, drone, power electronics and harsh noise and mixes it together with a touch of black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark while the song themes focus on dark themes.
In my opinion Steel Hook Prosthesis are a very great sounding mixture of death industrial, power electronics and blackened drone and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check put this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Doused With Acid" "The Medicus" "Deep In the Marrow" and "Sulpher Drip". 8 out of 10.
