Eight Bells are a band from Texas that mixes post black metal, progressive rock and experimental music together and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Captain's Daughter" which was released by Seventh Rule.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with no fast playing or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced playing that combines post black metal, progressive rock, psychedelic and experimental together to create a sound of their own as well as some soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are psychedelic sounding guitar leads.
Vocals are mostly clean singing female vocals with some black metal screams being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on t his recording with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Eight Bells are a very great sounding hybrid of post black metal, psychedelic, progressive rock and experimental music and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fate And Technology" and "Yellowed Daughter". RECOMMENDED BUY.
