Bog Oak “A Treatise on Resurrection and The Afterlife”
I do not know when this trio was formed, but very first recording dated in 2014, so maybe this is pretty young band. Bog Oak comes from USA, with two guys and one girl (vocals). So, here is their second stuff so far, just four tracks, but enough to get the point what Bog Oak is all about. Four tracks of female fronted blackened sludge mixed with doom metal, all in all – this work is pretty good. Of course I’d like hear much more music from them, but we have what we have now… First – atmosphere – really grim and mysterious, made thx typical sludge rhythms and chords. Tempo-changes are made in typical for sludge metal way, both slow and fast, with pretty good changes from one to other. Julie Seymour made pretty awesome vocals parts; without any doubts I can assume you’ll hear really awesome work, she using several types of vocals, and all of them are good, there you’ll hear clean vocals as well as mature roars. I can name this stuff no more like “next Worth for attention sludge/doom metal album”, you’ll hear nothing new or original, but you’ll not be bored. Average but good stuff. I’ll wait for their full-length album.
