Season Of Arrows are a band from Nashville, Tennessee that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of post, sludge, doom and stoner metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Give It To The Mountain" which will be released in October by Static Tension Recordings.
Acoustic guitars start off the album along with some percussion beats and the music can also be very atmospheric and experimental at times and after awhile the music goes into a very dark, heavy and melodic musical direction as well as adding in clean singing female vocals which also gives the music more of a 70's doom metal feeling.
At times the music brings in the heaviness of sludge while some of the retro style riffing gives the songs more of a stoner rock vibe and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion while also adding in a touch of post metal and clean playing also makes a return in certain sections of the recording and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Seasons Of Arrows creates another recording that brings in a very retro stoner and doom metal style while making it sound more modern by adding in elements of sludge and post metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the darker sides of life.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Seasons Of Arrows and if you are a f an of post, sludge, stoner, and doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Farewell To the Horsemen" "New Sorcery" and "From The Wilderness We Return". 8 out of 10.
