ISLANDS cover art

Islands are an Ambient Post-Metal Band from Sydney, Australia.

The members are:

Brock- Guitars
Chris- Drums

Islands are a top-notch Ambient Post-Metal Band from Australia. Home already to great bands such as Dumbsaint, AVER and current Sludgelord faves - Adrift For Days.

Well Islands are another great band to add to the list with their brilliant style of Post-Metal blending Ambient Riffs and Post-Rock to loud and heavy perfection.

The guys are influenced by the following great bands - Cult of Luna, Converge, Explosions In The Sky, Alcest, ISIS, This Will Destroy You, Russian Circles.

You can hear these band's influence on their own style of great music. But Islands really do stand on their own merit.

They have just released their excellent new S/T EP - A 5 song and almost 49 minute collection of brilliant Ambient Post-Metal riffs.

This is an album that Aaron and myself loved from the very first listen. The album really does draw you in from the start and never lets go until the dying seconds.

The album is an absolute monster of epic Post-Metal riffs. 3 of the songs runs past the 10 minute mark. One of those 3 songs runs for about 13 minutes or so.

If you want epic Post-Metal songs with a great sonic feel to them then this is the album for you. Just play this album as loud as you can and lose yourself in the realm that Islands have perfectly created.

Another outstanding Post-Metal album for you all to check out now. All of the songs are brilliantly put together that will have you begging for more.

If this is the sound of things to come from this great band then they will definitely be a major force to be reckoned with in the next few years or so.

You need this album in your collection now so head over to BandCamp right now and download it on Pay Anything You Want Type Deal. 

Highly Recommended by ourselves at Sludgelord. Amazing. End Of!!!
