Show Of Bedlam are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a mixture of sludge, stoner, doom and post metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Transfiguration" which will be released in March by PRC Music.
A very dark, heavy and atmospheric sound starts off the album along with some melodic riffing and a few seconds later female vocals are added onto the recording while the riffs also mix in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal and spoken word parts are also used at times as well as clean playing being added into some parts of the songs.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the vocals also have their aggressive moments along with the solos and leads being very melodic and also adding elements of post metal onto the recording while stoner and psychedelic touche are also added into certain sections of the recording.
Show Of Bedlam plays a musical style that takes stoner, sludge, doom and post metal and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover mental illness, shame, and alienation themes.
In my opinion Show Of Bedlam are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, sludge, doom, and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Lotus" "Hall Of Mirrors" and "Easter Water'. 8 out of 10.
