Keeper are a band from Fresno, California that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black metal, sludge and doom and this is a review of their 2015 ep "The Space beneath Your Teeth" which will be released in May by Crown And Throne Ltd.
A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the ep and after a couple of minutes grim black metal screams start to become a huge part of the recording and when solos and leads are utilized they use a great amount of melody and add a touch of post metal to the songs and there are only 2 of them and they are both very long and epic in length.
Both of the songs stick to a very slow and heavy sludge/doom metal sound and there are no fast parts or blast beats ever being utilized while you cna still hear all of the musical instruments that are presented on both of the songs which also bring in a great amount of distortion and reverb sounds.
Keeper creates another very heavy sludge/doom metal recording while also keeping all of the vocals in a black metal direction, the production sounds very dark, heavy and powerful while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Keeper and if you are a fan of black metal, sludge and doom, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Fool". 8 out of 10.
