Corsair are a band from Virginia that plays a mixture of doom, heavy metal and progressive rock and this is a review of their 2013 album "Ghosts Of Proxima Centauri" which was released by Shadow Kingdom Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with no fast playing or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the sound effects and keyboards which are only used briefly they bring in more prog elements to the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffing that combine doom, traditional metal and classic rock together to create a sound of their own with some melodies and clean playing being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars are very old school sounding heavy metal/hard rock guitar solos and leads with some progressive elements being used at times, as for the acoustic guitars they are only used briefly on the last song and they use finger picking to add more prog and classic rock elements to the music.
Vocals are all clean singing heavy metal vocals with a brief use of female singing, while the lyrics cover mythology themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and old school classic rock/metal sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with a couple of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Corsair are a very great sounding hybrid of doom, heavy metal and progressive rock and if you are a f an of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Warrior Woman" and "Eyes Of The Gods". RECOMMENDED BUY.
