Mountain God are a band from New York that plays a mixture of ambient noise, stoner, doom and sludge metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Bread Solstice" which will be released in March by Artificial Head Records.
Heavy doom metal riffing starts off the album along with some ambient elements in the background and there is also a brief use of distorted voices and touches of noise and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and you can also hear a great amount of melody in the guitar riffs.
Clean guitars can be heard in the music at times and after awhile high pitched sludge style screams start to make their presence known along with a few whispers and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the music also gets very experimental at times and the heavier riffs also add in elements of stoner rock and the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Mountain God plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in stoner, sludge, and doom metal while the experimental, ambient and noise elements gives the songs more originality, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and esoteric themes.
In my opinion Mountain God are a very great sounding mixture of ambient, noise, experimental, stoner, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nazca Lines" and "Hymn To Nothing". 8 out of 10.
