Metal Maniac

Burweed – Hide

Sem título

 

It seems like today is Finland day here on Metal-Maniac. Usually I review/ share my thoughts about one band per day, due to the many stressful works I have, otherwise I’d write more, but, the day I decide to write about one more release, both bands are Finnish. Perhaps I’m in Finland phase right now… a country I’ve always liked anyways. Well, back to what’s important, Burweed is an Atmospheric Sludge Metal/ Post-Hardcore from Karhula founded in 2009. Now, in 2015, their début full-length album, Hide, comes to light.

 

BWD-PROMO-1

 

I have always enjoyed the musical style that Burnweed plays, but, before listening to Hide, I hadn’t heard Sludge music for quite some time. I was a bit unsure, thinking if I didn’t like to this genre anymore because I grew out of it. Fortunately, Hide showed that it wasn’t the case; Hide, with its quality and distinction, made me feel like listening to Sludge Metal again. AS you have obviously concluded, this release, in my modest view, is one hell of a work, filled with intensity and sentiment. Featuring clean and the characteristic harsh vocals, outstanding instrumentals and a powerful atmosphere, amazingly catchy riffs, Hide takes you into a journey through different feelings, moods and landscapes. It’s the kind of album that you lay down while listening to it, then close your eyes and dream.

 

BWD-PROMO-2

 

As for the production of Hide, we are able to listen to a masterful work, all truly greatly recorded and mixed; all instruments and vocals are clearly listenable. Another positive aspect of this superb release.

 

BWD-PROMO-3

 

And I end my thoughts on Hide by doing what I always do, asking you to check their music and by liking their works, please, support the band, support the label, find a way to help promoting the underground as, in my humble view, they completely deserve our help by keeping the exceptional extreme music alive.
