If you are looking for a dark ambient metal sounding sound, listen to Oddhums.
Oddhums is a 3 man band, formed in 2016 in Spain. They mix multiple genres such as post-rock, post-metal, stone-rock, grunge, dark ambient and lots other. Although lot of genres can end up really really bad, for a new band such as Oddhums, things are going really well.
This is their first EP since they have formed. The EP is a solid piece for a first timer. It has 4 songs, and through all 4 songs the dark ambient flows within. The drop tuned guitar gives chills with heavy repeating hooks mixed with the drums and the hard bass. The fading vocal gives you the ultimate dark feeling while listening to it. If you are in the mood for a dark ambient piece of art this is for you. All of the elements, the guitar, the bass and the drums give you the ambient it has. The continuously drumming can sometimes give you a weird feeling, but in a good way, a feeling you when a music is getting under your skin.
Although it's not your classical metal album with crushing solos and hard kicking drums everywhere with growling and screaming vocals pumping your energy, you still feel the same energy listening to it. The hooks and drum rhythm makes you wanna headbang.
Even if they are still mostly unknown to the world, they make a really decent music which by my opinion would sound great live!
