Vile Creature are band from Ontario, Canada that plays a blackened form of sludge metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Cast Of Static And Smoke" which will be released in March as a joint effort by Halo Of Flies and Dry Cough.
Clean playing along with some nature sounds start off the album while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly and after awhile the music goes into more of a heavier sludge and doom metal direction as well as introducing tortured screams onto the recording which also add in a touch of black metal.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with some hardcore style shouts and death metal growls also being utilized at times and as the album progresses the riffs start using more melodies as well as all of the songs sticking to a very slow musical direction and melodic guitar leads can also be heard briefly.
Vile Creature plays a musical style that takes black, doom and sludge metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, t he production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album involving a science fiction and dystopian story.
In my opinion Vile Creature are a very great sounding mixture of black, doom and sludge metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Circuits Bending And Breaking" and "Sky, In Descending Pieces". 8 out of 10.
