Mind Mold are a band from Calgary, Alberta, Canada that plays an avant garde mixture of black and doom metal and this is a review of their self titled 2017 ep which was released by Sentient Ruin Laboratories.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep along with a mixture of growls and black metal screams and you can also hear influences of sludge and hardcore in the bands musical style and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody while blast beats can also be heard in the faster sections of the songs.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and at times the vocals also have a semi melodic tone to them and as the ep progresses synths are added onto the recording while the songs also mix in influences from noise rock, shoegaze, avant garde and experimental music and the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Mind Mold plays a musical style that mixes black metal, doom, sludge and avant garde to create something very original, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and surreal themes.
In my opinion Mind Mold are a very great sounding avant garde mixture of black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Antipath" and "Nyx". 8 out of 10.
