Leather Nun America are a band from San Diego, California that plays a very traditional and old school form of doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Buddha Knieval" which was released by Nine Records.
Clean playing starts off the album along with an atmosphere of a horror movie and after a minute the music starts to slowly get heavy and also brings in guitar leads that also become a huge part of all of the tracks and after the prologue the music starts going for more of a 70's and 80's style of doom metal.
Vocals are all in a clean singing direction and the music also brings in a great amount of dark sounding melodies and the clean playing from the intro also makes a return in certain sections of the recording and all of the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and released 30 or more years ago and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts while some of the later tracks also bring in a small amount of acoustic guitars as well as a couple of instrumentals.
Leather Nun America plays a style of doom metal that is very traditional and is more the 80's style of this genre and the music is very heavy, melodic and old school sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Leather Nun America are a very great sounding traditional doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Into Abyss" "Burning Village" and "Winter Kill" and "Irish Steel". 8 out of 10.
