Mars Red Sky are a band from Rance that plays a psychedelic mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Apex III(Praise For A Burning Soul)" which will be released in May by Listenable Records.
Clean playing starts off the album bringing in a very weird atmosphere along with some psychedelic elements a few seconds later and after awhile keyboards make their presence known on the recording and after the intro the music starts bringing in more of a heavier 70's style doom metal style.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the vocals are done in a clean singing stoner rock style while you can also hear a touch of indie rock at times and you can also hear some melodies in the guitar riffing and leads and they also alternate between both the clean parts quite a bit throughout the album and when acoustic guitars are utilized they give the songs more of a progressive rock feeling and some songs add in a slight blues influence.
Mars Red Sky plays a musical style that takes sludge, doom and stoner metal and mixes it in with 70's progressive and psychedelic rock to create something very retro yet original at the same time, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Mars Red Sky are a very great sounding mixture of psychedelic, indie, progressive rock, sludge, stoner and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Apex III" "Under the Hood" and "Shot In Providence". 8 out of 10.
