Jupiterian are a band from Brazil that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of funeral doom, death metal and sludge and this is a review of their 2015 cassette "Aphotic" which was released by Caligari Records.
A very powerful bass guitar sound starts o0ff the album bringing elements of doom metal onto the recording and the rhythms also bring a heavy sludge influence to the recording and you can also hear depressive sounding melodies at times and after a couple of minutes death metal growls start becoming a huge part of the tracks.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and a lot of the riffs bring in a great mixture of both funeral and early 90's doom/death metal influences and when high pitched screams are utilized they are almost in a black metal direction while the solos and leads are very dark and melodic and some tracks also bring in a small amount of spoken word samples and the whole album sticks to a very slow yet heavy musical direction from beginning to ending of the recording.
Jupiterian create an album that is mostly rooted in a 90's style of doom/death metal while also still havng some of the funeral doom and sludge elements of the previous recording, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover Mythology, Cosmos, Occultism, Lovecraft, Horror and Science Fiction themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Jupiterian and if you are a fan of funeral doom/death metal, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Daylight" and "Drag Me To My Grave". 8 out of 10.
