Lung Molde are a band from Oregon that plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their self titled 2015 album which was released on cassette by Caligari Records.
A powerful sounding bass guitar starts off the album giving the music more of a 70's doom metal feeling and after awhile the music also goes i9nto more of a heavier sludge direction along with some vocals that are very aggressive while also being melodic at the same time and the riffs also use melodies.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the music is also very heavily rooted in the mid 90's style of sludge metal and when guitar leads are utilized they bring in a retro stoner rock feeling and the whole album also sticks to mostly a very slow, dark and heavy direction from beginning to ending of the recording while a brief use of clean playing can be heard on the last track.
Lung Molde plays a style of sludge/doom metal that is very slow, dark, heavy and melodic sounding in the 90's style of the genre, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover substance abuse, depression, and self deprecation themes.
In my opinion Lung Molde are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Witch Trench" and "Skulls In The Acid Well". 8 out of 10.
