This is a review of a split ep between Missouri's Fister and California's TEETH which will be released in April by Broken Limbs and we will start off the ep with Fister a band that plays a blackened mixture sludge, doom, stoner and death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very distorted sound before going into a heavier sludge/doom metal direction that also uses a great mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the track being long and epic in length and some riffs also use a small amount of melody along with a small amount of clean playing and when solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic fashion, the production on their side of the recording sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dying themes..
In my opinion Fister are a very great sounding blackened mixture of stoner, sludge, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band.
Next up is TEETH a band that plays a mixture of sludge, doom and death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy sound along with some death metal growls and blast beats a few seconds later while the slower riffs are more influenced by sludge and doom metal along with a small amount of melody and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on their side of the recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Teeth are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "To Lay Upon Blistered Torns".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of black, death, doom and sludge metal. 8 out of 10.
