Flood Peak: Plagued by Sufferers

Flood Peak is a relatively new band, but they have already discovered their sound. The music on this EP, the band’s first major release, borrows from the minimal structures of post metal and combines them with one layer of doom and another of blackened sludge. The result is a heavy and powerful selection of songs that also manages a certain amount of nuance. The band is deliberately drawing on bands like Amenra, Grief, and Inter Arma, but they’ve done a good job developing their own sound.

Like other sludge-inspired bands, Flood Peak writes songs that move at a relatively slow tempo, but they keep things interesting with solid riffs, superb drumming, and relatively unobtrusive vocals. Of the four tracks here, I liked “Scourge” and “Mire” the most because I liked the blend of heavy riffing and quiet guitars. I also really enjoyed the way the vocals seemed to hang back in the mix, just barely rising above the level of the guitars and drums. This is a terrific new release, definitely worth a listen.

1. Precursor
