Chronic Hangover are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of 70's rock, stoner, and doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Nero Inferno Italio" which was released by Minotauro Records.
An avant garde sound starts off the album along with some demonic voices before going into a more hard and heavy direction where you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording along with some traditional hard rock/metal style vocals while t he music has the heaviness of sludge and doom metal.
A great amount of 70's hard rock and heavy metal influences can be heard in the bands musical style along with the solos and leads remaining true to the old school tradition and the faster sections of the songs bring in the energy of punk and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
The stoner elements gives the songs a more modern feeling and some songs also bring in a small amount of acoustic guitars while a later track adds in a touch of psychedelia and spoken word samples and the song also introduces synths onto the recording while a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Chronic Hangover plays a musical style that takes the traditional, doom, and stoner styles of metal and mixes it with 70's classic rock and a touch of punk to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction, occult and real life themes.
In my opinion Chronic Hangover are a very great sounding mixture of 70's rock, stoner, and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vituperio" "Regretudo" "Alamut 2112" and "Lucifer In The Sky With Diamonds". 8 out of 10.
