Morass Of Molasses are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "These Paths We Tread" which will be released in May by HeviSike.
Clean playing and water sounds start off the album before adding in a heavy stoner influenced sound a few seconds later along with solos and leads that also follow the same direction while the vocals are mostly aggressive sludge style screams and melodic singing is also used at times and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
Touches of post metal can be heard in the bands musical style while the riffs also bring in the heaviness of doom metal along with some of the tracks also being very long and epic in length and ritualistic spoken word parts can also be heard briefly before returning back to a heavier direction and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Morass Of Molasses plays a musical style that takes stoner, sludge and doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover mythological themes.
In my opinion Morass Of Molasses are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, sludge, and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "My Leviathan" "Serpentine" and "Wrath Of Aphrodite". 8 out of 10.
