SlowRepeat - Desert (Single Review)

Release Date: May 29th 2023. Record Label: Self Released. Formats: DD

Desert: Tracklisting



Psych Doom/Stoner Metallers SlowRepeat new song Desert is a trip to the Experimental side of the Doom/Stoner sound with a glitchy and distorted style of music allowing the band to bring a bold DIY flavour to the standard rules of the scene. It’s not the best produced song but there’s a deliciously aggressive edge to SlowRepeat’s overall sound.

The instrumental work can be quite Industrial and Punk based in places but there’s a trippy Desert Rock sound bursting to get out of the seams which can be reminiscent of OM and BONG in places with the trippy GREGORIAN based vocals and chants.

Harsh Soundscapes allows SlowRepeat to build upon their experimental sound I first heard on their 2022 debut self titled release. This release is more self aware and SlowRepeat seem more confident with their creative surroundings especially on the more Doomed Out parts and I admire the slow based approach they allow for their heavy grooves to really gather momentum which really shines in the HEAVY VOLUME department.

Desert is a great track with some fantastic droned out grooves which could serve the band well in becoming more well known within the Doom/Stoner Metal underground scene. 

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
