Jupiterian are a band from Brazil that plays a mixture of funeral doom, sludge, and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Archaic".
A very distorted sound along with a great amount of reverb starts off the ep before going into more of a heavy doom metal direction along with some deep death metal growls and after awhile the music starts utilizing more melody and adding in elements of sludge as well as some atmospheric sounds which takes the recording into more of a funeral doom direction.
You can hear black metal screams being added into certain sections of the recording at times along with some melodic guitar leads as well as the first track being very long and epic in length and on the second track a brief use of clean playing is added into the song before making a return to a heavier musical direction and on the last track they bring in a very long and epic 10 minute song that also brings in spoken word samples from a 1950's film while also keeping around a very melodic and heavy sound.
Jupiterian takes a very melodic and heavy style of funeral doom and adds in elements of sludge along with some death metal growls and a touch of black metal to create their own musical sound, the production sounds very dark and heavy for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover mythology, cosmos, occultism, Lovecraft, Horror and Science Fiction themes.
In my opinion Jupiterian are a very great sounding mixture of funeral doom, sludge and death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Currents of Io". 8 out of 10.
