Morgengruss are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of folk, drone, psychedelia and doom metal and this is a review of their self titled 2016 album which was released by Taxi Driver Records.
Ambient drones start off the album along with some clean yet distorted guitars being added onto the recording and a few seconds later melodic vocals make their presence known on the recording and female vocals along with psychedelic elements are also added into some parts of the songs.
Traces of neo folk can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording with the acoustic guitars and saxophones and the distorted riffs add a touch of doom metal onto the recording and the music also gets very experimental and avant garde at times and there is also a brief use of melodic guitar leads on a later track and a couple of the songs are all instrumental and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts.
Morgengruss plays a musical style that takes experimental, drone and folk and mixes it in with a touch of doom to create a musical style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and poetic themes.
In my opinion Morgengruss are a very great sounding mixture of folk, drone, psychedelia and doom and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Father Son" "Apparent Motion" and "Hope". 8 out of 10.
