This is a review of a split album between California's Chrch and Missouri's Fister which was released by Crown And Throne Ltd. and we will start off the review with Chrch a band that plays a mixture of doom and sludge metal.
Their side of the split starts out with clean guitars along with some drums being added onto the recording a couple of months later which also takes the music into a heavier direction along with some sludge style screams while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion.
All of the musical instruments on their side of the recording have a very powerful sound to them while their track is over 16 minutes in length along with a brief use of clean vocals and spoken word parts as well as the music always remaining slow, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Chrch are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and doom metal.
Next up is Fister a band that plays a mixture of black, doom, sludge and stoner metal.
Their side of the split starts out with drum beats along with some black metal screams while the riffs also bring in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal along with the track being 20 minutes in length as well as some growls also being utilized at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while the music also brings in elements of stoner metal along with a brief use of clean playing and the music always sticks to a slow direction, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Fister and if you are a fan of black, sludge, doom and stoner metal, you should check out their side of the split.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of black, sludge, doom and stoner metal. 8 out of 10.
