Oryx – Widowmaker

Oryx is a two member, sludge metal band from Las Cruces, New Mexico. ”Widowmaker” which was released on the 5th of April is their debut Lp.

Before we begin with this review, i would like to say that the album cover is a killer one. The moment i saw this album cover, i said to myself i definitely have to listen to this release. It felt really good that the album totally lived up to my expectations. ”Widowmaker” contains seven tracks. Seven songs combined with ultra heavy riffs and really nice vocals. I really liked their singer’s vocals. I singled out songs like ”To create an apparition”, ”Imminent Death” and ”Widowmaker”. I have to say that ”Widowmaker” is my favorite track.

As i have already said the artwork is great. It was done by Ethan McCarthy. The album’s production is great too. Fans of Electric Wizard, Cough, Sleep are gonna love Widowmaker. Links:
