Agatha are a duo from Italy that plays a mixture of sludge, doom metal and punk and this is a review of their 2014 album "Gravis Atque Gravitor" which was released by Chaos Rural Records.
A very dark and heavy sludge metal sound starts off the album along with some aggressive female vocals a few seconds later that also use a small amount of clean singing at times and at times the music brings in a decent amount of melody along with the aggression of punk rock and the songs also stick to a very slow or mid paced musical direction.
You can hear a great amount of doom metal elements in the slower sections of the guitar riffing while the songs also bring in a touch of post metal at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and they manage to keep all of the songs in a very hard and heavy style of sludge metal and one of the later tracks also brings in a brief use of melodic guitar leads.
Agatha plays a style of sludge/doom metal that is very melodic and also bring s in the raw aggression of punk rock to create a sound of their own, the production sound s very raw yet powerful and heavy at the same time while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Agatha are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, doom metal and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "1981" "Planets Conspiracy" and "Keep breathing Please". 8 out of 10.
