Taurus are a band from Portland, Oregon that plays a very psychedelic form of sludge/doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 album "Life".
Drums are all slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats, 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 riffs that combine psychedelic, sludge and doom metal together to create a sound of their own with a good amount of heavy distortion being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on t his recording.
Vocals are mostly clean singing chanting along with some spoken word samples and sludge style screams, while the song themes cover life themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording, in addition the 2 songs are long and epic in length.
In my opinion Taurus are a very great sounding hybrid of psychedelic, doom metal and sludge and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Life Part 2". RECOMMENDED BUY.
