Message for the Damned
January 2015
Released: 2014, N/A
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: UK Team

Gévaudan are a 4 piece doom metal band based in Herts/Beds, UK who formed in 2013 and if this debut 3 track EP is anything to go by they are a force to be reckoned with.

The bands influences include Black Sabbath, Goatsnake and Electric Wizard, and there is a hint of this throughout, along with a more modern take on the classic metal style. On first listen I thought there were two vocalists as Adam Pirmohhameds vocals switch seamlessly from an almost classic rock clean vocal in the more melodic parts, through to a guttural death growl on heavier parts, which may not to be to everyone's tastes, but worked well for me personally and would like to hear more.

The whole EP is full of raw energy, combined with powerfully heavy riffs, so much so that the melodic parts almost pass you by, along with a wide range of vocal styles which keep you entertained throughout. It will be interesting to hear what they come up with next in the studio as this is only a debut so they have plenty of time to further refine their style and really make it their own.

Bands like this usually put on a great live performance so I'd recommend anybody in the local area catching them live at one of their upcoming gigs.
