4 Metal Fists Out Of 5!
DARKENTRIES is a Post-Sludge band from Columbia, South Carolina and one of the first signed bands to Kylesa’s new record label: Retro Futurist. Overall, this 5 song debut EP from Darkentries, The Make Believe, is a blend of extreme, macabre sound, vibes and emotions. If you can picture how the Melvins would sound being phenomenally pissed off, coupled with the dark anger of Trillion Red, then you’ll (hopefully) know what Darkentries is serving for Metal dinner… and it’s not your grandma’s mac and cheese.
With all of that above blab stated, Darkentries are unique, with an overriding Doom Metal quality and forceful energy about their Metal. If you like to be scared straight, then play this nifty EP in a total dark room by yourself. The vocals alone are an extreme showstopper and quite possibly from dark places unknown to mankind. Don’t allow the band’s look (see photo at bottom) deceive you. This band isn’t looking to share their time mulling over imported tea and biscuits; this Darkentries crew is instead looking to dominate a Metal genre and kick your eardrums into submission. Cool.
Darkentries plays at such a potent level of Post-Sludge Extreme and their Metal has an impressive enormous bite; their debut should catapult their career both among the underground dwellers and those above that know better. That’s my Metal assessment, anyways. Dig it? I sure dig Darkentries. Metal be thy name. – Stone
