Plaguewielder are a band from Ohio that plays a blackened mixture of doom and sludge metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 single "Writing In Mental Torment".
Drum beats, heavy guitars and high pitched black metal screams start off the song while the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and back up shouts along with elements of black'n'roll are also added into the track along with a very powerful sounding bass gutiar and the slow riffs mix in influences of doom and sludge metal.
Plaguewielder plays a musical style that takes black metal, black'n'roll, sludge and doom metal and mixes them together to create a dark sounding track, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Plaguewielder are a very great sounding blackened sludge metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this single. 8 out of 10.
