SEVEN SISTERS OF SLEEP: Self-titled: 12”

May 26, 2011

A mix of sludge with hardcore. Musically, the results are pretty good. They hit with some heavy riffs that work their way into you head long after the record is over. Lots of low end and the guitars sound great. The only complaint I have with this record is the vocals. They don’t work well with this music at all. At times, the music gets buried under a muddy wall of yelling. I get the sense the singer is overcompensating, when he should just let the music come through and complement the whole affair with less shouting at the top of his lungs. The gatefold packaging is excellent. This comes not only with a download card, but a DVD of each of the songs, which mixes footage of films from Mario Bava, Ed Anger, and Alejandro Jodorowsky.
