Kreyskull are a band from Finland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a psychedelic mixture of heavy, doom metal and hard rock and this is a review of their 2017 album "The Bird Of Bad Weather" which was released by Sliptrick Records.
Sci fi sounds start off the album before going into a heavier doom metal direction along with some melodic riffing and 70's style heavy metal vocals and the music also mixes in a great amount of classic rock influences while also being very modern at the same time while the solos and leads bring in a more retro style.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and saxophones are also used briefly and clean playing along with psychedelic elements can also be heard in certain sections of the album and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly and some of the tracks are long and epic in length.
As the album progresses acoustic guitars are introduced onto the recording and when synths are utilized they give the music more of an atmospheric feeling while some songs also mix in elements of 70's era occult rock and Spanish guitars along with some stringed instruments can also be heard briefly and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and female vocals are also added onto a later track.
Kreyskull creates another recording that remains true to the psychedelic mixture of heavy, doom metal and hard rock from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Kreyskull and if you are a fan of psychedelic doom metal and heavy rock, you should check out this album.. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cosmic Scavenger" "Return Of The Witch" "7th Chamber" and "Planet Zorg". 8/5 out of 10.
