Viscera/// are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very experimental and psychedelic form of post metal with touches of black and sludge metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "'3/Release Yourself Through Desperate Rituals" which will be released in May by WOOAAARGH.
High pitched blackened sludge screams start off the album along with some heavy riffing and melodic chanting a few seconds later and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Elements of crust and grindcore can be heard during the faster sections of the songs and when guitar leads are utilized they bring in a more melodic post metal approach while you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the guitar riffing along with the slower sections also being very heavily influenced by doom metal.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while melodic singing and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and there is also a brief use of crust/hardcore style back up shouts and the music also brings in a great amount of psychedelic elements while other tracks also bring in experimental and avant garde touches as well as a brief use of radio station samples.
On this recording Viscera/// takes experimental, psychedelia, crust, grind, black, doom, sludge and post metal and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Viscera/// and if you are a fan of experimental, psychedelia, crust, grind, black, doom, sludge and post metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Uber-Massive Melancholia" and "In the Cut". 8 out of 10.
