Montgolfiere are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very progressive and psychedelic form of stoner rock and this is a review of their 2017 album "The Fall" which was released by PRC Music.
Spoken word samples start off the album along with some clean playing and drum beats a few seconds later which also leads up to a more heavier stoner and proto metal style which also utilizes a great amount of melody while also making their 70;s influences sound a lot more modern.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the solos and leads also gives the songs a more retro feeling and after awhile psychedelic and progressive rock elements also make their presence known and the vocals are mostly clean female singing along with some male vocals.
The songs also bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts and organs and jazz influences can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while a later track introduces pianos onto the recording and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses acoustic guitars are added onto the recording and one of the tracks is an instrumental.
Montgolfiere creates another recording that remains true to the psychedelic and progressive style of stoner rock from previous releases, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Montgolfiere and if you are a fan of psychedelic and progressive stoner rock, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Clouds" "The Search" and "Split In Vain". 8 out of 10.
