Moloken are a band from Sweden that plays a progressive and atmospheric mixture of sludge metal and post hardcore and this is a review of their 2015 album "All Is Left to See" which was released by Temple Of Torturous.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some weird structures before adding in melodic guitar leads and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when vocals are brought onto the recording they are mostly aggressive sludge style screams and atmospheric synths can also be heard at times.
Clean playing can be heard in some parts of the songs and after awhile more elements of post hardcore can be heard on the recording and there are also a couple of brief instrumentals and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard while some songs are very long and epic in length and the music also becomes more progressive as the album progresses and violins are added onto the last track.
Moloken plays a musical style that takes sludge metal and post hardcore into more of a progressive and atmospheric musical direction, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Moloken are a very great sounding atmospheric and progressive mixture of sludge metal and post hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "All Is Left To See" "Seventh Circle" and "Beginning Of The End". 8 out of 10.
