AlgomA are a band from Canada that plays a mixture of doom and sludge metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Reclaimed By The Forest" which was released by Dead Beat Media
Spoken word samples start off the album before adding in distorted reverb and a very heavy bass guitar which leads up to rhythm guitar bringing in more of a slow and very heavy doom metal sound and after awhile clean sections can be heard in certain sections of the recording and once vocals are added into the music they have more of an angry and tortured approach to them bringing in somewhat of a crustcore style.
Most of the songs on the recording are very long and epic in length and they also use the spoken word samples on some of the other songs as well and all of the songs stick to a very slow and heavy musical direction as well as adding in a small amount of distorted drones at times and as the album progresses the vocals start bringing more of a screaming approach.
AlgomA creates a very heavy and slow style of sludge and doom metal and while they sound quite a bit like other bands at time s they still pull it off very well and creates 6 songs that show the heaviest side of the genre, the production sound s very powerful while the lyrics cover dark, depressive, and hateful themes.
In my opinion AlgomA are a very great sounding sludge/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fell Down A Well" and "Extinct Volcanies". 8 out of 10. .
