Canyon Of the Skull are a band from Texas that plays an instrumental mixture of black, doom and sludge metal and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2015 album which will be released on October 30th.
A very dark, slow, and heavy sludge metal sound starts off the album along with some elements of doom and both of the tracks are very long and epic in length and contain no vocals or lyrics and when melodies are utilized they are very dark and melodic sounding and also bring in a heavy post black metal influence to the music.
Elements of stoner metal and improv can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and at times the music also adds in mid paced riffing and the songs never go into a fast direction and only add in a brief use of solo and leads and focus more on a very heavy blackened doom metal style.
Canyon Of The Skull plays a musical style that takes black, doom and sludge metal and mixes them together in an instrumental format to create a style of their own and the production also sounds very professional for being a self released recording.
In my opinion Canyon Of The Skull are a very great sounding instrumental mixture of black, doom and sludge metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Canyon Of The Skull". 8 out of 10.
