Mhonos are a band from France that plays a very ritualistic form of doom metal with elements of drone and black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Miserere Nostri" which was released by ZANJEER ZANI Productions.
Distorted drones start off the album along with some heavy bass guitars a few seconds later and after a minute melodic chants are added onto the recording and when synths are added onto the recording they give the music more of an experimental and avant garde style and when the bass guitars speed up they add a touch of black metal onto the recording.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and grim vocals along with spoken word parts can also be heard in the music at times which also gives the songs more of a ritualistic feeling and clean guitars can also be heard in some of the tracks and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction while there is also a brief use of ambient elements.
Mhonos plays a very slow and bass guitar form of doom metal which they also mix in with elements of black metal, drone, ritualistic and ambient music to create a style of t heir own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover occultism themes.
In my opinion Mhonos are a very great sounding ritualistic doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sequentia" and "Communio". 8 out of 10.
