Qafas are a band from Bahrain that played a very atmospheric and ambient form of doom metal on this release and this is a review of their 2010 e.p "Al-Ahlaam" which eas released by Misty Graveyard.
Drums are all slow playing with no fast playing or blast beats being present on this recording, while the keyboards bring a very dark ambient sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars are all slow funeral doom riffs that are very dark and melodic sounding with the songs are very short for this genre, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the classical guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking to enhance the darkness that is coming out of the music .
Vocals are all absent form this recording with the music being all instrumental, while the songs revolve around dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark and primitive sound to it while the instruments still sound very powerful.
In my opinion Qafas created some very great sounding atmospheric, dark ambient funeral doom with this recording, and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Al Sadma Al Mutakererra" and "Ijtima' Al Shua'ra". RECOMMENDED BUY.
