Genre: Doom / Post-metal / Sludge
Label: Badger Records
Ortega is a four-piece sludge/doom collective from The North of The Netherlands, the band has been around since 2008 and ¨A Flame Never Rises On Its Own¨is their latest release, a three-track ep recently released on vinyl by Badger Records. Haven’t listen their old recordings yet, so i can’t say this are the best recordings from the band, but after hearing this ep 4 times i believe they can reach more audience with their music. Each track is a different movement that keeps you between doom and sludge, heavy riffages that turns atmospheric proper of post-metal or post-rock, but not showed in phases, all the sounds being just one, its amazing how they keep the listener in the same atmosphere from the beginning to the end. For fans of Neurosis, Koloss or Huldra, recommended.
