Sixes are a band from California that plays a mixture of black, sludge, stoner and doom metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Methistopheles" which was released by Black Bow Records.
Powerful sounding bass guitars start off the album while the slow riffs bring in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal along with the vocals bringing in black metal influenced screams as well as most of the songs being very long and epic in length and the solos and leads also add in touches of stoner rock.
Growls and hardcore style vocals can also be heard at times while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with some drones also being used at times and on some tracks the vocals also add in some clean yet rough singing and as the album progresses the music speeds up briefly and also introduces blast beats onto the recording and acoustic guitars are added onto the closing track.
Sixes plays a musical style that takes black, sludge, stoner and doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover misery, drugs and occultism themes.
In my opinion Sixes are a very great sounding mixture of black, sludge, stoner and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Acid God" "Methistopheles" and "Voidkiller". 8 out of 10.
