Mirrors For Psychic Warfare are a musical project that consists of Neurosis, Buried At Sea, Eyehategod, and Yakuzu that plays a mixture of neo-folk, experimental and noise and this is a review of their self titled 2016 album which was released by Neurot.
Experimental and avant garde sounding guitar riffs start off the album along with a lo-fi atmosphere and after a few seconds melodic neo folk style vocals are added onto the recording and distorted drones can also be heard in certain sections of the recording which are done with some guitar noises.
Atmospheric sounds can be heard in the background and after awhile industrial metal elements can be heard in some parts of the recording and all of the songs are very long and epic in length and programmed beats are also added into some parts of the tracks along with some ambient soundscapes and a small amount of dark sounding melodies can be heard in the guitar riffing at times.
On one of the tracks the vocals start utilizing more aggression while on some tracks the guitar amp reverb adds a touch of harsh noise to the recording and when guitar leads are added onto the recording they have a melodic tone to them and the whole album sticks to a very low musical direction while every song sounds very different from each other.
Mirrors For Psychic Warfare creates an album that starts out with a neo folk style before going into more of a heavier and experimental direction while still adding in elements of ambient to create an album that is very hard to classify, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and haunting themes.
In my opinion Mirrors For Psychic Warfare are a very great sounding mixture of experimental, ambient, noise, industrial and metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Thorn To See" and "I'll Try You All". 8 out of 10.
