Mountainwolf Absinthe Moon Album Review

Today, we will be introducing to you an experimental doom metal band who deserves your attention; Mountain Wolf, from Maryland, USA. They have released their second full-length album titled; “Absinthe Moon” in September 2017 and started to get more and more exposure with their specific metal sound.

Mountain Wolf is a band who caught my interest when I heard one of their song; “Krishna” for the first time, from their latest album. I really liked their sound, I think it is original enough to be called “rare”. They have an excellent combination of layerings on instruments which creates an amazing sound, vibe, and a fresh feeling. Their very specific sound carries their name so well, and influences the listeners right away. The drop-tuned guitars and uncommon guitar chord preferences are the fundamentals of their music. Most of the time this reminds me of Mastodon. These gentlemen in both bands have many in common. But honestly, isn’t it exciting to explore a great album by a band who also have some similarities with Mastodon?

Secondly, the recording quality on their second album is very successful indeed. Every effect in every second of every instrument has been engineered very accurately by professionals, or by someone who is really skilled and experienced in producing this kind of metal. Again, guitars and bass sound so great while they make the same movement, or play the same melody time to time. The focus is more in the overall instrumental sounds than the individual performances. Even the vocalist doesn’t have the priority as the instruments. Which I respect all these decisions. They have seen what they have the best, and played their cards right. When you go deeper about them a little bit, you will understand better what I am talking about here.

Ultimately, I found Mountain Wolf very professional in everything they have done so far. In my opinion, the top level (the most popular) metal music scene is having its worst days since the 70’s with its awful releases. Meanwhile, it is a big relief to see bands like Mountain Wolf doing so well, so good from the underground metal, along with so many other names that you can discover on our blog. Strongly recommended for all Metal fans! Thanks for reading!
