Atmospheric synths start off the album and after the intro the music goes into more of a post rock direction and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the vocals also bring in a great amount of clean singing and the heavy guitars also takes the music into more of a metal direction.
A great amount of melody can be heard throughout the recording and the solos and leads are done in a very dark yet distorted style and after awhile the vocals start getting more aggressive while also bringing in a touch of hardcore and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of whispered vocals and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Moanaa plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in post metal while also bringing in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover personal struggles and depression themes.
In my opinion Moanaa are a very great sounding atmospheric post metal band with some elements of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Process Part 1" "Terra Matter" and Grim Encounter". 8 out of 10.
