Gossamer are a band from Pennsylvania that plays a mixture of stoner, doom, and post metal with elements of chamber music and this is a review of t heir self released and self titled 2017 ep.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the ep and also adds elements of post rock onto the recording while the vocals are mostly clean singing and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and after awhile heavy doom metal riffing is added onto the recording and the songs also mix the clean and heavy parts together at times.
Elements of stoner metal can also be heard in the bands musical style while the solos and leads have a melodic shoegaze style to them and as the ep progresses the songs start adding in touches of chamber music and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction while also having its progressive moments and aggressive screams a re used briefly on the closing track.
Gossamer plays a musical style t hat takes stoner, doom and post metal and mixes it with chamber music to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover darkness and depressive themes.
In my opinion Gossamer are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, doom, and post metal with a touch of chamber music and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Medusa" and "I Never Said Yes Ton This". 8 out of 10.
