Blissful Stream: Dead Religious

March 13, 2018

With an overall eclectic and diverse sound, Blissful Stream sew doom, sludge, heavy metal and hard rock together to create an overall head nodding and unique listen. Through this one man band’s newest offering Dead Religious, you are presented with four new tracks that take all of the aforementioned genres and stitch them together neatly through each track to provide you with a varied sound.

Dead Religious kicks off with the doom laden track Downfall which offers up a slow burning, murky and fuzzed out sound that submerges you in sludge filled ever trudging riffs. Downfall is the most murky and somber offering on this release as it takes you through crumbling corridors of buzzing riffs and pounding drumming for four minutes before turning you over to the more heavy metal and hard rock sounding tracks Into the Abyss and Dead Religious. Both of these tracks utilize their hard rock and heavy metal components to gift you with a faster paced, head nodding and memorable sound. Both of these tracks greet you with intensely buzzing riffs that are paired with ever rumbling bass lines and crisp ever gritty and blackened vocals. Downfall  and Dead Religious get your head nodding and brain buzzing before you descend to the fourth and final track Black Ships.

The final track Black Ships is all around the best and most well put together track on this release. This offering utilizes each of the genres that Blissful Stream sews in to his work, and this song utilizes them well. You get hints of heavy metal, hard rock and certainly hints of doom, and they all come together in miserable harmony to create a cohesive, smooth sounding track that is hard to shake. Black Ships is a very memorable, very intoxicating track that is certainly the perfect track to end Dead Religious with. Black Ships rocks with mid tempos and it slows down to a glacial pace with its doom offerings to present you with a gloom filled ever darkening sound that is hard to not love. This somber yet captivating track is a well rounded and very well  performed track that as mentioned before, is the perfect ending to an all around solid offering in Dead Religious.

This is a short release and yet it comes complete with plenty of variety and plenty of entertainment. Through four tracks you are greeted with a heavy dosing of heavy metal, hard rock as well as doom and sludge sprinkled in there for good measure. In my opinion, the tracks that focus more on the doom elements are the best tracks on the release as Blissful Stream hits them right out of the park. The middle two where hard rock and heavy metal are the focus are good solid tracks as well that get your head nodding and get you engaged. And with four total songs that are all around solid offerings, Dead Religious is an all around very good release that is highly entertaining, gloomy and memorable.
