Ssanahtes are a band from France that plays a mixture of black metal, sludge and post hardcore and this is a review of their self released 2018 album which will be released in March by WOOAAARGH.
Distorted amp noises along with some heavy sludge riffing starts off the album while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with some angry screams that also bring in elements of black metal as well as some semi melodic vocals also being used at times.
Spoken word parts can also be heard at times while the songs also mix in elements of post hardcore along with some of the riffing also bringing in a decent amount of melody as well as most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can also be heard and as the album progresses a small amount of psychedelic elements are used briefly and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and a later track also introduces drones onto the recording, clean guitars are also brought onto the closing song.
Ssanahtes plays a musical style that takes black metal, sludge and post hardcore and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover angry themes.
In my opinion Ssanahtes are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, sludge and post hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sad Song" and "To Seal Off A Breach". 8 out of 10.
