Sunnata are a band from Poland that plays a mixture of doom metal, sludge, psychedelic and stoner rock and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Climbing The Colossus".
The album starts out with psychedelic sounds and after the short intro the music goes into a more psychedelic stoner metal direction along with some grunge style melodic vocals which also get aggressive in certain sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and they also bring in another short intro.
As the album continues the music goes into a more heavy direction mixing psych, grunge, stoner, sludge and doom metal together as well as adding in a good amount of melody into their music and the band also brings in fuzzy and distorted sounding guitar solos and leads at times and they also bring back intros towards some of the other songs that are present on this recording as well as bringing in a brief use of clean playing on one of the tracks.
With this album Sunnata take the heaviness of sludge and doom metal and mixes it in with the melody of grunge, psychedelic and stoner rock to create a sound of their own which is very heavy and dark sounding.
Song lyrics cover dark themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Sunnata are a very great sounding mixture of doom metal, sludge, grunge, psychedelic and stoner rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Orcan" "Asteroid" "Path" and "Monolith". 8 out of 10.
