La Colpa are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of black, doom, sludge metal and noise and this is a review of their 2017 album "Mea Maxima Culpa" which was released by Toten Schwan Records.
Experimental and avant garde sounds start off the album and also mix in with the powerful bass guitars a minute later along with some grim screams a few seconds later which also leads to a more heavier sludge metal direction and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
After awhile black metal screams start to make their presence known while the faster sections of the songs bring in a small amount of blast beats along with some elements of harsh noise, spoken word parts are also used briefly and elements of drone are also utilized at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and tribal beats are added onto the closing track as well as the riffs bringing in doom metal style melodies.
La Colpa plays a musical style that takes black, doom, sludge metal and noise and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion LaColpa are a very great sounding mixture of black, sludge, doom metal and noise and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Scars". 8 out of 10.
