Bludy Gyres are a band from Georgia that plays a progressive form of doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Echoes Of A Distant Scream" which was released by SoMan Records.
Drum beats and melodic guitar leads and riffs start off the album and the music is very heavily rooted in a traditional doom metal style and the bass guitars are also used as a lead instrument along with the music being very heavily rooted in the 80's and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
When vocals are utilized they are done in a clean singing fashion and while the music is very heavily rooted in the past the production gives the songs a more modern feeling and spoken word parts are also used briefly and the music also gets very progressive at times along with an improv feeling and a later track also introduces acoustic guitars onto the recording and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical style.
Bludy Gyres plays a style of doom metal that is very slow, dark and progressive sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, depressive and death themes.
In my opinion Bludy Gyres are a very great sounding progressive doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Keep Death Busy" and "Defy The Lie". 8 out of 10.
