Heathe are a band from Denmark that plays a mixture of black, drone, sludge, doom metal and noise rock and this is a review of their 2019 album "On The Tombstones, The Symbols Engraved" which will be released in May by Wolves And Vibrancy Records.
Drum beats start off the album along with some slow and heavy doom metal riffing a few seconds later. Vocals are mostly high pitched tortured black metal screams while the only track on this album is over 38 minutes in length along with the music also capturing an improv atmosphere.
Horns are also added into some parts of the music and also gives the song more of an avant garde feeling. A small amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing which also captures the heaviness of sludge metal, At times the riffing get very repetitive sounding along with the same riff being used for minutes upon minutes and the music also mixes in influences of drone and noise rock.
Heathe plays a musical style that takes black, sludge, drone, doom metal and noise rock and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark while the lyrics when they are utilized cover death themes.
In my opinion Heathe are a very great sounding mixture of black, sludge, doom metal, drone and noise rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. 8 out of 10.
