Reka - III (2011)

Full Length, OSK Records
June 17th, 2011

Genre: Atmospheric Sludge
Region: Russia

Excellent atmospheric sludgey hardcore from Russia. Overall III is very well paced with no dull moments or filler, every track is heavy and memorable, perfect build ups with satisfying crushing payoffs. Its a really enjoyable, intense album that surprised the shit out of me. The vocalist is from Celeste, several members of Optimus Prime and Fortunae Verbera make up the remaining members so there's an interesting mix of influences at work here.

I'd say this is a sweet spot between something like Tesa and dark sludgey bands like Amenra, Time to Burn or Celeste. Their two previous albums are a bit more on the post-rock/post-metal side of things, worth a listen but I definitely found myself listening to this on repeat a lot this year.
