Mope are a band from Italy that plays an instrumental form of doom metal and this is a review of their self titled 2014 album which was released by Taxi Driver Records.
Drum beats start off the album along with some shamanistic elements and a few seconds later clean guitars along with saxophones are added onto the recording before going into a heavier doom metal direction where you can also hear all of the musical instruments on the recording and the music also gets experimental at times.
All of the songs avoid vocals and song writing while also having more of a jam or improv feeling at times and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length and on the second track avant garde sounds and pianos are added onto the recording and one track also brings in a brief use of psychedelic elements and drones and the whole album also sticks to a very slow musical direction.
Mope plays an instrumental musical style that is mostly rooted in doom metal while also adding in more of an experimental and avant garde approach to this genre and the music sounds very original and the production on the recording also brings in more of a professional sound.
In my opinion Mope are a very great sounding experimental, instrumental doom metal band and if you are a fan of musical direction, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Doomed To Feed The Ground". 8 out of 10.
