Queen Elephantine are a band from Rhode Island that plays a mixture of drone, sludge, psychedelic and doom metal and this is a a review of their 2015 album "Omen" which was released by Atypeek Music.
Drone sounds start off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later before adding in acoustic guitars and clean singing vocals and after a minute the music starts going into more of a heavier direction and when guitar leads are added into the music they are very melodic and add in a touch of 70's rock.
Psychedelic sounds can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and when the music gets heavy it brings in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal and the vocals also bring in aggressive screams at times while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music also gets very experimental and avant garde on some songs and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some of the songs also have a very ritualistic, tribal and shamanistic feeling to them and the whole album also sticks to a very slow and heavy musical direction from beginning to ending of the recording.
Queen Elephante plays a musical style that takes drone, sludge and doom metal and mixes it in with ritualistic, psychedelic and experimental music to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and occult themes.
In my opinion Queen Elephante are a very great sounding mixture of psychedelic, drone, sludge, and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Sea Goat" "Search For the Deathless State' and "Shamaniac Procession". 8 out of 10.
