Deadsmoke is a new Italian stoner/sludge/doom metal band formed in 2015 and this is their first release. I guess this is labelled as an album although there are only five tracks in 31 minutes on the disc. All the songs are heavy as hell and will please any fan of harsh sludge metal. Again, this is not exactly the kind of music I like to listen to at home, but live this surely kicks ass. Most of the vocals are screamed and very powerful like the singer really means what he's saying! I like the crushingly heavy riffs and the doomy, depressive vibe of the album. There's also enough variation in mood and sound to keep things interesting, and the playing is great and production just right for this kind of swampy, dirty, raw & down-tuned heavy shit. My favourite is the final track "Night of the Vipers" that has some more traditional doom sounding melody as well. For fans of Crowbar, Down, Eyehategod, Iron Monkey, Bongzilla etc.
