Nest are a duo from Kentucky that plays a blackened mixture of doom and sludge metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Metempsychosis" which will be released in March by Sludgelord Records.
A dark sounding intro starts off the album along with some distorted drones before going into a heavier sludge direction which also introduces black metal screams onto the recording along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while clean playing can also be heard at times.
A great amount of doom metal elements can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody along with some growls also being added into certain sections of the recording and when guitar leads are finally utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and as the album progresses a brief use of blast beats can be heard and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length and also adds in elements of harsh noise.
Nest plays a musical style that takes black, sludge and doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover misanthropic themes.
In my opinion Nest are a very great sounding blackened mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Cowardice Ans Rashness Of Courage" "Heretic" and "Life's Grief". 8 out of 10.
