Below The Sun are a band from Russia that plays a progressive mixture of drone and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Alien World" which will be released in May by Temple Of Torturous.
Ambient style drones start off the album along with some atmospheric synths and after awhile clean playing is added onto the recording and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful while t he riffs mix in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls along with a few screams that add in a touch of black metal while clean singing is also used at times and the acoustic guitars also gives the songs a more progressive feeling and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and a couple of tracks are instrumentals and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Below The Sun plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in sludge and doom metal while also mixing in elements of drone, progressive and post rock to create something different, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album based on a science fiction novel called "Solaris" which was written by Stanislaw Lem.
In my opinion Below The Sun are a very great sounding progressive mixture of post and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mirrors" and "In Memories". 8 out of 10.
