Cauldron Black Ram are a band from Australia that plays a mixture of black, doom, sludge and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2012 ep "The Poisoner" which was released by Abysmal Sounds.
Drums range from slow to mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being used at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming that combines influences from black, sludge, doom, thrash and death metal to create a sound of their own along with some dark sounding melodies while the lead guitars are very primitive sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are a mixture of black/thrash style growls, high pitched screams and shouting gang vocals along with a brief use of spoken word ritualistic parts, while the lyrics cover occult, dark and horror themes, as for the production it has a very dark, rw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Cauldron Black Ram are a very great sounding mixture of black, sludge, doom, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Poisoner" and "Infernal Interjections". RECOMMENDED BUY.
