Jagged Mouth are a band from Albuquerque, New Mexico that plays a blackened mixture of doom and sludge metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Louring" which will be released in October.
A very dark yet heavy doom metal sound starts off the album which also uses a decent amount of melody as well as mixing in the heaviness of sludge while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording along with most of the songs being long and epic in length.
When guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic style and angry hardcore style vocals can also be heard at times and as the album progresses more elements of stoner metal are added onto the recording while one track also brings in a brief use of clean vocals and all of the songs stick to a slow musical direction and acoustic guitars are also added onto the last track.
Jagged Mouth plays a musical style that takes black, doom, sludge and stoner metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Jagged Mouth are a very great sounding blackened mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Wretched Offering" and "Lingers The Taolith". 8 out of 10.
