A Thousand Sufferings are a band from Belgium that plays a mixture of black, doom, stoner and sludge metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Burden" which was released by Satanath Records.
A very dark and atmospheric sounding drone starts off the album along with some spoken word parts and a touch of ambient and on the second track the music goes into more of a heavier stoner/sludge metal direction along with some grim black metal screams making their presence on the recording.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and dark sounding melodies can also be heard at times in both the riffs and guitar leads and the music also adds in a touch of modern black metal in some parts of the songs and all of the songs stick to a very slow yet heavy musical direction that is also very heavily influenced by doom metal and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and a couple of track brings in a brief use of clean singing and spoken words and some of the leads also bring in post metal elements and the last song also adds in a few seconds of blast beats.
A Thousand Sufferings plays a musical style that takes the vocals of black metal and mixes it with sludge, stoner and doom metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes along with all of the songs adding in names of colors.
In my opinion A Thousand Sufferings are a very great sounding mixture of black, sludge, doom and stoner metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band, RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Red Is Redemption (Bloodletting)" and "Blue Is...(Remembering Treasures)". 8 out of 10.
