Palinopsia are a band from Vermont that plays a blackened form of doom/sludge metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Murmurs From The Well Nothing More".
Distorted reverb's start off the ep before going into more of a heavy and melodic sludge metal direction and a few seconds alter growls and black metal screams are added into the music and you can also hear a lot of elements of doom metal in the bands musical style and at times the music speeds up a bit and adds in a decent amount of blast beats.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and when solos and leads are utilized they give the music more of a southern and stoner metal feeling and spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and some of the riffs have almost a 70's vibe at times while the music is still very modern and there is also a brief use of clean singing on one of the tracks.
Palinopsia plays a music style that is mostly in a stoner, sludge and doom metal direction and mixes it in with a great amount of black metal elements to create a very heavy sounding recording, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Palinopsia are a very great sounding blackened sludge/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Three Sisters" and "Celestial Rift". 8 out of 10.
