Flood Peak are a band from Portland, Oregon that plays a mixture of black, sludge, doom and post metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 album "Plagued By Sufferers".
Atmospheric sounding synths start off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction while the vocals are mostly angry sludge style screams along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and most of the tracks a re very long and epic in length.
A great amount of doom metal elements can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs while the vocals also utilize black metal screams at times along with some clean guitars also being added into certain sections of the recording as well as the music also mixing in a great amount of post metal elements and all of the music sticks to a slower direction.
Flood Peak plays a musical style that takes black, sludge, doom and post metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover bleakness and hopelessness themes.
In my opinion Flood Peak are a very great sounding mixture of black, sludge, doom and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Scourge" and Veiled By Summoners". 8 out of 10.
