After spending years and undergoing many trials and tribulations to produce their debut album Red Skin Melts back in 2015, Oslo rock quartet Syndrom have ironed out their music and stepped it up a gear for their forthcoming follow-up – Bloodbeats.
The tracks on offer have a large sound that is chiefly industrial, although they do mix in other elements that make it atmospheric and also give it that experimental touch. Each number has this pulling power which is consistent throughout that makes them both heavy and hypnotic.
The droning vocals contribute to the murkiness of the material and fits nicely with the coarse guitars and the bulky rhythms, composed of sharp bass tones and constantly pounding drum hits which make up the aforementioned sound.
Dark, gritty and overall captivating, Bloodbeats is a well-crafted record that is an enjoyably desolate trip for those who like to delve in the doom and gloom.
