Finland's Fleshpress have returned with a new recording that is also in the stoner, sludge and doom metal mixture of previous releases along with some black metal elements and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Hulluuden Muuri".
Distorted amp noises start off the album before going into a very fast direction that also uses a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music a black metal feeling along with some high pitched screams and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very distorted style.
A great amount of sludge and doom metal elements can be heard in the slower sections of the songs along with the vocals also adding in screams more close to that genre and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the music also gets very progressive at times along with a touch of psychedelic traces and most of the music sticks to a slow direction.
Fleshpress creates another recording that remains true to the sludge, stoner, and doom metal mixture of previous releases while also having some psychedelic and black metal elements, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics are written in Finnish and cover misanthropy, anger and disgust themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Fleshpress and if you are a fan of sludge, stoner, and doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lunastuksen Ajan Vera Riiti" and "Voiman Taydellinen Toteutuminen". 8 out of 10.
