EP Review: Lark – Lark (Self Released)

Progressive sludge/stoner metal band Lark are set to release their debut, self-titled EP on October 31st 2017.

Lark 1

The five track EP kicks off with a nice sludgy groove & up-tempo beat. Hailstorm is an exciting start that has progressive sounding elements as well as a catchiness that gets the blood pumping.

There is more imagination in Lark’s sound then you might initially expect & that really comes to fruition on Red Eye. A track that harks back to an early Opeth sound. There is no getting used to one particular style with Lark as Heavy then offers a more robust metal sound & Too Far Gone lays on the doomy sludge with an added touch of melody.

It might be a little all over the place but as each track stands out in its own way there are no actual complaints. This excellent debut ends on a return to the early stoner metal sound with Decay. Proof that this kind of music can leave you feeling positive & uplifted. A finale that cements the quality found in Lark. Such a strong showing & one that really leaves you feeling excited about the future of sludgy metal.
