Tides Of Sulfur are a band from South Wales and on this recording plays a mixture of black, sludge, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Paralysis Of Reason" which will be released in March as a joint effort between Sludgelord and APF Records.
A very fast and aggressive grindcore influenced sound starts off the ep along with some blast beats. The vocals are mostly high pitched screams while the music also adds in a touch of d beat and crust punk as well as the slower sections of the songs being very heavily rooted in sludge and doom metal.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the music also adds in a brief use of movie samples. At times the screams also add in some black metal elements as well as some death metal growls also being used at times.
Dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly. All of the tracks sound very different from each other but also keeping everything in a heavier direction. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover nihilism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Tides Of Sulfur and if you are a fan of black, sludge, doom, death metal and grindcore, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Humorless Cunt" and "Paralysis Of Reason". 8 out of 10.
