The Judge are a band from St. Louis, Missouri that plays a mixture of progressive, psychedelic and stoner rock and this is a review of their 2017 album "Tell It To The Judge" which was released by Ripple Music.
70's influenced proto metal style riffs start off the album while the music sounds very modern with the stoner rock elements and after awhile clean vocals are added onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the music also adding in the energy of punk rock.
When solos and leads are utilized they remain very true to a retro style and as the album progresses psychedelic and progressive elements are added onto the recording and one of the tracks also brings in clean guitars and some of the riffs also add in a touch of doom metal and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the music sticks to either a slow or mid paced direction.
The Judge plays a musical style that takes 70's psychedelic and progressive rock and mixes it in with a modern style of stoner rock to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion The Judge are a very great sounding mixture of psychedelic, progressive and stoner rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Empty Halls" "Changing World" "High Flyin" and "Parade Of Sin". 8 out of 10.
