Dredge are a band from Iowa that plays a very atmospheric, progressive and technical mixture of hardcore, noise, grind and metal and this is a review of their self released 2010 album "Sediment".
Water, nature and train sounds start off the album along with a spoken word part before going into a very heavy and progressive direction along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them which also leads to some growls that combine hardcore and death metal together.
When fast parts and high pitched screams are added onto the album you can hear a great amount of traces of noisecore and grind and the band also adds a great amount of technical sounding melodies into their musical sound along with a mixture of both clean and heavy parts and there are also a great amount of blast beats being displayed in the songs along with a small use of spoken word parts.
In certain sections of the recording you can hear small amounts of clean singing being utilized as well as a small amount of acoustic guitars and a good portion of the songs are very long and epic in length as well as most of the tracks being very diverse yet heavy and brutal all at the same time..
Dredge have a very atmospheric, progressive and technical metal sound to t hem which also mixes in noisecore, hardcore and grind along with a great amount of diversity and melody to create a sound only they can call their own, the production sound s very professional for being a self released recording and the lyrics cover darkness and nature themes.
In my opinion Dredge are a very great sounding atmospheric, progressive and technical mixture of hardcore, noise, grind and metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Stench Of May" "Trauma Bucket" "Shiver" and "Everlasting Now". 8 out of 10.
