Royal Talons s/t EP Cover Art

Royal Talons are a Sludge/Stoner Metal Band from Denver, USA

The members are

Jevf: Voc. / Guitar
Dread: Bass / Voc.
Kurdt Kocaine: Drums / Voc. 

Royal Talons play a great blend of Noise, Punk, Hardcore, and Doom all blended together by a heavy pounding of huge slabs of awesome Sludge and Stoner Metal.

These guys know to mix their riffs superbly well to give the viewer a unique listen. Sounding like a cross section of the usual Sludge/Stoner Metal big hitters but adding their own identity on their brilliant loud and heavy music.

Royal Talons have just released their outstanding new S/T EP – A 5 track 45 minute ride of intense Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs blended in with great Punk, Hardcore, Doom and Noise overtones.

Their album has been released on the brilliant Handshake Inc who have just recently released Sulaco’s brilliant new album which has been mentioned on this blog before.

But this is Royal Talons album we are taking about and what an EP it is. Brilliantly produced and put together. This has heavy riff after heavy riff to drown the listener with.

The first song “Shark Skull” is an almost 10 minute epic which blends all of the genres superbly. Heavy, Loud, Psychedelic and amazing riffs get this superb release off to a great start.

And the great songs just keep on coming. The next song “The Scroll” should have you hooked by now. Full of more brilliant Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs you can shake your head at.

Royal Talons have a great talent at writing a heavy pounding Sludge/Stoner Metal riff. This song would go down a storm on the live circuit. As it has the right amount of heavy Sludge/Stoner Metal riff that could easily get the crowd going in no time at all.

The other 3 songs on show are an absolute blast as well. This album is a brilliant collection of highly original songs with some of the best Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs I have heard in a long while.

I implore you all to go to BandCamp and get this brilliant album as it’s available on Pay Anything You Want Type Deal.

Simply a brilliant album by a brilliant band. Awesome Stuff.

Highly Recommended.
