Deadwound are a band from The United Kingdom that plays a mixture of black metal, doom, sludge, d beat, and hardcore and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Identity Shapes" which was released by Black Bow Records.
Dark effects and spoken word parts start off the ep before going into a more heavy and melodic sludge metal direction while the vocals also take sludge and mix it in with black metal screams while crust style growls can also be heard at times and the slow riffing is also heavily influenced by doom metal.
A great amount of hardcore elements can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of d beats can be heard and the guitar solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Deadwound plays a musical style that takes black metal, doom, sludge, d beat and hardcore and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover occultism an other dark themes.
In my opinion Deadwound are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, doom, sludge, d beat and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Kult Warrior" and "Babylon". 8 out of 10.
