Gunpowder Gray are a band from Georgia that plays a mixture of doom metal, NWOBHM and heavy rock and this is a review of their self titled 2014 ep which will be released by Boris Records.
The ep starts out with a heavy sound that combines 70's hard rock and doom metal together and a few seconds later blues rock style vocals and melody are added into the recording and after awhile solos and leads become a part of the music.
When the ep goes into other songs NWOBHM elements are added into the music and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them with the ep going for more of a 70's hard rock/metal sound and at times you can also hear traces of hair metal in the music.
With this ep Gunpowder take doom, NWOBHM, hair metal and classic/blues rock to create a sound that is very retro and old school in sound while also having a more modern day production to it.
Song lyrics cover dark and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Gunpowder Gray are a very great sounding mixture of doom, heavy metal and hard rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gunpowder Gray" "Under the Gun" and "Saints". 8 out of 10.
