Chuck Schuldiner Project

Sunday, August 17, 2014


It's been a while since I've genuinely enjoyed oneof the smaller bands who I have taken it upon myself to review. Masthar are different though, perhaps simply because of the fact that their unique brand of metal destruction is filled with pounds of groove and harsh vocal destruction. Masthar groove in a way that only legends on the scale of Crowbar can (And in fact, they recently opened up for the sludge metal gods) Masthar have a clearly defined attack, and though it very much fits in the paradigm of sludge and stoner metal, they certainly seem capable of delivering so much more. The punchy bottom end of Raccoon Delitch is the sort of thing that strikes you right below the belt and forces you to open up, finding a separate peace in the destructive riffage of this band. Tossing yourself into the undulating soundscapes of Masthar is a joy like no other. Simply put, Masthar understand sludge metal, and for a riff obsessed nerd like me, what more could you ask for?
