Burnt Books are a band from South Carolina that plays a experimental mixture of noisecore, crust, hardcore and punk and this is a review of their self titled 2012 album which was released by At A Loss Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with not much in the way of blast beats, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the folk instruments which are only used on a couple of songs they bring an avant garde sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine noisecore, crust, hardcore and punk together to create a sound of their own and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals range from deep growls, high pitched screams, clean singing to whining spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover hateful and everyday themes, as for t he production it has a very strong, powerful, and heavy sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Burnt Books are a very great sounding hybrid of noise, crust, hardcore, experimental and punk and if you are a fan of t hose musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Selfish Friend" "Massive Conspiracy Theorist" "Unforgiven" and "Pretty Daughters". RECOMMENDED BUY.
