Kalloused are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of blackened doom, sludge and post metal and this is a review of t heir 2016 ep "Damn You Believer" which was released by Third I Rex.
Clean playing starts off the ep and whispers can also be heard in the background and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and a great amount of post metal elements can be heard in the music while the heavier sections of the music are more rooted in sludge and doom metal.
Most of the vocals are grim yet high pitched black metal screams and most of the music also sounds very modern while also bringing in a touch of hardcore and after awhile a small amount of dark sounding melodies can be heard briefly and there is only a brief use of guitar leads while all of the songs also remaining very true to a slow musical direction while clean guitars also return in certain sections of the recording and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and the last track is very long and epic in length and also brings in a few seconds of drones.
Kalloused plays a musical style that takes black, doom, sludge and post metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics cover dark and angry themes.
In my opinion Kalloused are a very great sounding mixture of blackened doom, sludge and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. 8 out of 10.
