Moribund Mantras are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of black and stoner doom metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Golden Void" which was released by Rain Without End Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of black metal elements tremolo picking and blast beats. All of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the vocals being done in an angry screaming and shouting style.
Elements of stoner doom metal can be heard in the slower sections of the songs while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with some clean playing also being added into some parts of the music.
Clean singing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with the guitar solos and leads being done in a very dark yet melodic style when they are utilized. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow and mid tempo parts as well as one track also introducing clean playing onto the recording and as the album progresses a small amount of ritualistic soundscapes can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism themes.
In my opinion Moribund Mantras are a very great sounding mixture of black and stoner doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fragments" and "Ascension". 8 out of 10.
