High Reeper are a band from Pennsylvania that plays a mixture of stoner rock and doom metal and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2017 album.
Hard and heavy guitar riffing starts off t he album along with the heaviness of doom metal while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the vocals gives the songs more of a 70's proto metal feeling which they also mix in with a more modern stoner rock style.
A great amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing while the guitar leads remain very true to a retro style and touches of 70's hard and blues rock can also be heard at times and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and also keeping everything in a heavier direction.
High Reeper plays a musical style that takes stoner rock and mixes it in with the heaviness of 70's era doom metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Drugs, and Darkness themes.
In my opinion High Reeper are a very great sounding mixture of stoner rock and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Die Slow" "High Reeper" "Double Down And Let It Ride" and "Friend Of Death". 8 out of 10.
