Review Type: 

Not sure if they're a sludge, crust or grindcore band, Call of the Void decides to be all three at once with their 2013 release Dragged Down A Dead End Path. Musically the disc is complex full. The guitars chop, thrash and wail. The bass and drums lay down an amazing blast beat with the vocals providing a backwash of anger. Call Of the Void sounds as if they carry the weight of the world on their shoulders and must create angry bulldozing music for catharsis. The sound is similar to that of Pig Destroyer with a bit of EyeHateGod, Mastodon, Converge, Doom or Nasum added to keep it focused. This disc offers them up with ten of the songs being under three minutes long. The changes in direction and mood are really great and not overused or forced. Worth checking out for anyone into this current style of metal.
