qip are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of death, electro and industrial metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "On Ephermetal Substrates" which was released by Arachnophobia Records.
Distorted sounds and a dark atmosphere start off the album and after awhile spoken word samples are added onto the recording which also leads up to more of an industrial direction along with some growling vocals that also gives the songs more of a death metal edge and the guitars start getting heavier.
At times melody can be heard in the music and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion.
qip plays a musical style that takes death metal and mixes it with electro and industrial to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction and political themes.
In my opinion qip are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, electro and industrial and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Industrial Espionage" "Discarded Specimans" "Ergoregion" and "This Place Is A Tomb". 8 out of 10.
