Goom are a band from the Netherlands that plays a very heavy form of stoner rock and this is a review of their 2015 album "Solar Motel" which was released by RVP Records.
A very hard stoner/grunge rock sound starts off the album along with some melodic guitar riffing and clean singing vocals and you can also hear a touch of 70's rock in the bands musical style and the solos and leads also return true to a melodic and heavy style of rock along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
A lot of the songs have a vintage 90's feeling to them but done with a more modern production and there are also a couple of tracks that are instrumental before having the vocals return on later songs and some of t he heavier riffs bring in a doom metal feeling at times and the whole album sticks to a slow musical direction.
Goom plays a style of stoner rock that has some metal influences and also brings in a great touch of 90's grunge to t heir musical style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Goom are a very great sounding stoner rock band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Universal Evils" "Ison" "Lend me your Blood" and "Rivers Run Dry". 8 out of 10.
