Sarah Halter (USA) - The Doom That Binds Us - Reviewed By rockportaal ! Check it out here at this link: https://www.rockportaal.nl/sarah-halter-the-doom-that-binds-us-ep/
In 2002 Halter signed with Sparrow Heart Records, the year before she released two songs on the single A Clockwork Destiny. The new EP has become a real one-woman action. Halter is responsible for the production, the recording and, of course, the performance.
Halter combines different styles on these four songs. There are influences from progressive metal, but also death and symphonic metal. In this way it becomes a beautifully varied whole and at the same time gives an excellent outline of what Halter has to offer.
The whole EP lasts just over fifteen minutes, opener Scatter is a slow doom metal song. Dragging riffs with infectious vocals that become raw and primitive at the end. In the song Bad Touch the structure is more or less the same, the song starts quietly and starts to sound heavier towards the end.
On Ravenlore the emphasis is more on the riffs, it is a relatively quiet rock song. The closing piece is the title track of the EP, The Doom That Binds Us. Here all registers open again, death metal and doom are combined and Halter delivers a strong song. All in all an excellent EP that is definitely worth checking out. - rockportaal
