Growling death metal vocals and heavy riffing starts off the ep along with some black emtal screams a few seconds later. The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic yet progressive style and some of the mid tempo riffing and shouts shows an influence of hardcore.
Elements of post metal can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while a touch of sludge metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the music. Video game samples can also be heard briefly and the whole recording mostly sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction and the music also speeds up briefly on the closing track and also adds in a small amount of tremolo picking and blast beats.
Hallowed Hands plays a musical style that takes black, death, sludge, progressive metal, hardcore and video game music and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cove r video games, wasted youth, health problems and growing up.
In my opinion Hallowed Hands are a very great sounding progressive post black metal band with elements of death, sludge metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bullet Hell" and "Final Form". 8 out of 10.
