Goryl are a 1 man band from Tennessee that plays an occult mixture of drone, doom metal and sludge and this is a review of both of his albums "Father Of Witches" and "Father of Evil Witches" which will both be re-issued as a double cassette compilation in February of 2015 by Medusa Crush Recordings.
A very dark and old school rock/metal riff starts off the compilation and it also brings in a blues and classic rock feeling at times and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the music being all instrumental along with all of the songs sticking to a very slow musical direction.
All of the drones on both of the recordings are done by guitars which is also the only musical instrument that is presented on both of the recordings on the compilation and the riffing can be very repetitive at time s while still bringing in a ritualistic and shamanistic feeling at times and the last track brings in whispers that add to the occult elements of the recording.
Goryl creates a musical style that is done on electric guitars alone and brings in a mixture of influences from drone, sludge, doom metal and blues rock to create an instrumental sound, the production sounds very dark and raw while the concept of both albums deal with Witchcraft and Shamanism.
In my opinion Goryl is a very great sounding occult and instrumental mixture of drone, sludge, doom metal and blues rock and if you are a fan of those genres, you should check out this musical project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rituals From Warlocks" "Old Demon Blues" "Angels Blood Is A Cure" and "The Shaman's Speech". 8 out of 10.
