(0) are a band from Denmark that plays a progressive mixture of post black, sludge metal and drone and this is a review of their 2020 album "SkamHam" which will be released on April 24th by Napalm Records.
Clean playing starts off the album along with some heavier riffing a few seconds later while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. The riffs also add in a great amount of melody as well as the faster sections of the songs also adding in a great amount of blast beats.
Vocals are a mixture of black metal growls and deep growls while the music also adds in a great amount of progressive and post metal elements. Elements of sludge metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs along with clean playing also making a return on some of the later tracks.
A great portion of the songs are very long and epic in length along with the guitar solos and leads being done in a very melodic style as well as the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing and as the album progresses drones can also be heard in certain sections of the recording, the closing track is also an instrumental. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Danish and cover dark and gloomy themes.
In my opinion (0" are a very great sounding progressive mixture of post black, sludge metal and drone and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tyndere end Hud" "Rod Glorie" and "SkamHam". 8 out of 10.
