Superjoint are a band from Louisiana that was previously known as Superjoint Ritual and this is a review of their 2016 album "Caught Up In The Gears Of Application" which was released by Housecore Records.
Distorted amp sounds start off the album along with some aggressive vocals a few seconds later as well as a small amount of spoken word parts which also leads up to a heavier musical direction that also mixes in a great amount of sludge metal elements along with a decent amount of melody.
At times the music brings in the energy of punk rock while the vocals almost have a death metal touch in some parts of the songs along with some aggressive screams and the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when solos and leads are utilized they give the songs more of a melodic metal and punk edge and the music also always remains very heavy.
Superjoint creates another recording that remains true to the sludge metal and crossover mixture of previous releases while also adding in a touch of crust, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Marijuana, Alcohol, Violence and Personal Struggles themes.
In my opinion Superjoint are a very great sounding mixture of sludge metal and crossover and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Today And Tomorrow" "Caught Up In The Gears Of Application" "Asshole" and "Rigging The Fight". 8 out of 10.
