Mage are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Green" which will be released in March by Witch Hunter Records.
A very hard and heavy stoner/doom metal sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads also bring in a 70's retro rock feeling and the vocals are done in more of a clean singing fashion bringing in a more classic rock/metal vibe.
While the music has a lot of roots in the past it still sounds very modern at the same time and after awhile high pitched sludge screams are added onto the recording and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody and all of the songs stick either to a slow or mid paced musical direction and clean guitars are added on the last track which is also very long and epic in length.
Mage plays a musical style that takes sludge, stoner and doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Mage are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, stoner, and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nowhere To Nothing" "Green" and "Vultures Mass". 8 out of 10.
