Laser Flames On The Great Big News are a band from Nashville, Tennessee that plays a mixture of southern, alternative rock and doom metal and this is a review of their self titled 2017 album which was released by Wood And Stone Productions.
Psychedelic sounds start off the album along with some slide guitar leads and after the intro the music goes into a heavier southern metal direction along with some male clean vocals and the music also mixes in the heaviness of doom metal while the solos and leads add in a touch of classic rock.
Female vocals are also a very huge part of the recording and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and acoustic guitars along with banjo's and violins are added into certain sections of the recording along with some elements of 90's alternative rock and spoken word parts are also used briefly and when the music finally speeds up a small amount of blast beats and aggressive screams can be heard and they add in touches of sludge and hardcore.
Laser Flames On The Great Big News plays a musical style that takes doom metal, alternative and southern rock and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Laser Flames On The Great Big News are a very great sounding mixture of southern, alternative rock and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "31 Years" and "Open, Dead And Doomed". 8 out of 10.
