Worm Ouroboros are a band from the Bay Area of California that plays a mixture of doom metal, dark ambient, and neo folk and this is a review of their 2016 album "What Graceless Dawn" which was released by Profound Lore.
Dark ambient style sounds start off the album along with some drones and female vocals a few seconds later and when guitars are utilized they add in a touch of post rock and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
Whispered vocals are also utilized at times and after awhile melodic guitar leads are added onto the recording and some tracks also add in touches of goth and death rock and the guitar riffs also mix in the heaviness of doom metal while also using a great amount of melody and the acoustic guitars are influenced by neo folk and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Worm Ouroboros plays a musical style that takes doom metal, death rock, post rock, ambient, progressive, ethereal and neo folk and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover tragic and despair themes.
In my opinion Worm Ouroboros are a very great sounding mixture of doom metal, dark ambient, and neo folk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Broken Movements" and "Night". 8 out of 10.
