Dwellers are a band from Salt lake City, Utah that plays a psychedelic form of metal/rock and this is a review of their 2014 album "Pagan Fruit" which will be released by Small Stone.
Psychedelic sounds start off the album along with some blues rock elements and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and melodic vocals start to kick in a s well as bringing in guitar slides, once the guitar leads start to kick in the classic rock influences really start dominating the album.
As the album progresses more grunge and proto metal elements found their way into the music along with some 60's acid rock being updated for the modern day and on some of the later tracks you can hear some ethnic music sounds being added into certain sections of the recording along with some songs that are very long and epic in length.
On the later tracks the band starts adding in harmonicas, organs, pianos, synths, tambourines, and cellos with their heavy and hard rock sound which also starts having a more modern day feeling as time goes on by along with a small dose of punk rock influences and the last track evokes a very heavy doom metal like feeling.
Dwellers have an original sound on this album which they label as gut rock, and they take 60's and 70's rock and proto metal and mix them in with some grunge and stoner rock to give the music a very retro yet modern feeling, the production sound s very professional and the lyrics cover paganism, occultism and mythology themes.
In my opinion Dwellers are a very great sounding psychedelic rock/metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Totem Crawler" "Son Of Raven" "Spirit Of the Staircase" and "Call Of The Hallowed Horn". 8 out of 10.
