Satori Junk are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of psychedelia, stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their self titled 2015 album which was released by taxi Driver Records.
Spoken word samples which also appear on some of the later tracks as well start off the album along with a very heavy sounding bass guitar a few seconds later which leads up to a 70's style doom metal sound and elements of psychedelia and the vocals that are brought onto the recording are clean singing stoner rock style vocals and the music also brings in the heaviness of sludge.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and 70's psychedelic rock style synths are mixed in with the heavier riffs quite a bit throughout the recording and when solos and leads are utilized they bring in a heavy dose of classic rock influences and the songs also add in jam sessions at times that have an improv feeling to them and the whole atmosphere of the recording brings in a feeling of either a LSD or mushroom trip and most of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction while the album does contain a small amount of mid paced parts.
Satori Junk take a very heavy style of sludge and doom metal and mixes it with stoner and psychedelic rock to create a very dark and heavy drug induced recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Shamanism, Occultism, Horror, Dreams and Nightmare themes.
In my opinion Satori Junk are a very great sounding mixture of psychedelia, stoner, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Monsters" "Shamaniac" and "Lord Of The Pigs". 8/5 out of 10.
