Poseidon are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal with a touch of noise and drone and this is a review of their 2017 album "Prologue" which will be released on July 21st by Ripple Music.
Distorted drones start off the album and after a few seconds drums and bass guitars are added onto the recording along with some clean playing also being utilized at times and after awhile the music goes into more of a heavier sludge and doom metal direction and the vocals are done in a melodic style.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic fashion and after awhile the vocals start utilizing more aggressive screams and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with acoustic guitars being introduced on one of the songs along with a brief use of slide guitars and spoken word samples can also be heard briefly and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Poseidon plays a musical style that takes sludge and doom metal along with some touches of noise and drone to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and anti religion themes.
In my opinion Poseidon are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and doom metal with some touches of drone and noise and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mother Mary Son Of Scorn" and "Omega". 8 out of 10.
