Tuskar are a duo from The United Kingdom that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal with a touch of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "The Tide, Beneath, The Wall" which will be released in December by Riff Rock Records.
Distorted guitar amp noises start off the ep before adding in some very heavy doom metal riffs which also capture the heaviness of sludge while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the vocals adding in a clean stoner rock touch as well as adding in some aggressive screams.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffs while the faster sections of the songs add in blast beats and black metal elements along with the music also having its progressive and psychedelic moments and at times the riffs also go into more of a mid tempo direction which gives the songs more diversity and clean playing can be heard briefly on the closing track.
On this recording Tuskar remains true to their mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal while still having a slight black metal influence, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover mythology themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Tuskar and if you are a fan of stoner, sludge and doom metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Wall". 8 out of 10.
