Jupiter are a band from Finland that plays a very psychedelic form of stoner rock with a touch of doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Interstellar Chronodrive".
Drum beats start off the album along with some clean playing a few seconds later that is very heavily rooted in the 60''s and a few seconds later the music starts getting more distorted along with some melodic guitar leads and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with some proto metal elements.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the power chord riffing brings in the heaviness of 70's doom metal and the vocals are all done in a clean singing fashion and also remains true to the retro vibe of the bands musical style and as the album progresses the music starts bringing in more psychedelic elements.
At times the music can also be very progressive at times and also adds in an improv jam style in some songs and clean playing also makes a return in certain sections of the recording and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and while the music is rooted in the 60's and 70's the stoner metal elements makes the tracks have a more modern feeling and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Jupiter plays a musical style that takes stoner and doom metal and mixes it with 60's and 70's psychedelic rock to create a very retro yet heavy album, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and metaphysical themes.
In my opinion Jupiter are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, doom metal and psychedelic rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spirit Of The Leech" and "Vantage Point". 8 out of 10.
