This is a review of another recording from Dredge which continues their atmospheric, progressive and technical mixture of hardcore, noise, grind and metal which was self released in 2013 and called "The Shadow Current".
A very dark, melodic and distorted sound starts off the album along with some powerful sounding bass lines and a minute later the music starts going into a heavier direction along with some melodic clean singing vocals which evolve into some aggressive sounding hardcore style screams and deep growls.
When the album goes into other t racks the music gets a bit more heavier and brutal along with some blast beats as well as maintaining the progressive sound s of the first album along with a mixture of both acoustic and heavy parts and a good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and they also keep the melodic vocals in certain sections of the recording.
As the album progresses the music starts getting a lot more original and diverse in sound as well as adding in an instrumental before returning back to the regular tracks and they also start to get more experimental as time goes on by with the title track being over 16 minutes in length and mixing a variety of many different musical genres in the song.
Dredge remain true to their extreme technical and progressive hardcore/ metal sound on this album as well as being a bit more heavier and experimental this time around, the production is very professional sounding and the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Dredge and if you are a fan of atmospheric, progressive, technical, grind, hardcore and extreme metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sister Sphere" "Whiskey And Kisses" and "The Shadow Current". 8 out of 10.
