Briqueville are a band from Belgium that plays a mixture of post metal, drone, and field recordings and this is a review of their 2017 album "II" which will be released in September by Pelagic Records.
Heavy sludge metal style riffing starts off the album along with some distorted amp noises while t he drums also get very aggressive at times along with the music also mixing in a great amount of drone and field recording elements, folk instruments can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic post metal style along with most of the songs being instrumental and mixing in an improv feeling as well as mixing in the heaviness of doom metal, all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while spoken word parts along with angry are also used briefly, there is also a brief use of psychedelic elements and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Briqueville plays a musical style that takes post, sludge and doom metal and mixes them with drone, field recordings and experimental elements to create something very original while keeping most of the material instrumental and the production sounds very professional.
In my opinion Briqueville are a very great sounding mixture of post metal, drone and field recordings and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "II". 8 out of 10.
