Zaum are a band from New Brunswick, Canada that plays a very psychedelic form of doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Eidolin" which was released by I Hate.
Melodic yet ritualistic chanting starts off the album while drones and folk instruments are also used at times and after a few minutes clean playing is added onto the recording which also leads to a heavier doom metal direction where you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Vocals are mostly clean traditional doom metal style vocals while both of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the songs also bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts and after awhile the music gets more psychedelic along with some female vocals also being used briefly and they also give the music more of an esoteric feeling and on the second track natures sounds are used briefly and both of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Zaum plays a style of doom metal that is very psychedelic and ritualistic sounding, the production sounds very professional while t he lyrics cover Ancient Middle Eastern and Mesopotamia themes.
In my opinion Zaum are a very great sounding psychedelic doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Influence Of The Magi". 8 out of 10.
