Mohicans are a band from San Francisco, California that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge metal and hardcore punk and this is a review of their self titled 2015 ep which was released by Creator-Destroyer Records.
A very heavy hardcore sound starts off the album along with some aggressive screaming vocals while you can hear some retro melodies in the riffs while the guitar solos and leads are very dark, depressive and melodic and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
A lot of 70's doom metal influences can be heard in the bands musical style and the music also speeds up at times and also brings in a touch of old school punk as well as a brief use of blast beats and you can also hear a great dose of stoner rock elements quite a bit throughout the recording and all of the songs also stick to a very heavy musical direction.
Mochicans plays a musical style that takes sludge metal and mixes it with stoner rock and hardcore punk to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover alienation and failure in a new unforgiving city.
In my opinion Mohicans are a very great sounding mixture of sludge metal, stoner rock and hardcore punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Swan" and "Bixbi". 8 out of 10.
