Moribundo are a band from Spain that plays funeral doom/death metal and this is a review of t heir 2017 album "Raiz Amarga" which will be released on June 18th as a joint effort between Satanath Records and More Hate Productions.
A very heavy doom metal sound starts off the album along with some dark sounding melodies while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic fashion and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Grim spoken word parts can be heard at times along with some atmospheric sounding synths and after awhile guttural death metal growls make their presence known along with a small amount of black metal screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and stringed instruments are also used briefly and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard while the main focus is on a very slow musical style and one track also brings in a brief use of acoustic guitars.
Moribundo plays a musical style that takes a modern form of funeral doom and mixes it with 90's era doom/death and a touch of black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover melancholic themes.
In my Moribundo are a very great sounding funeral doom/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vida" and "Suicido Illustrado". 8 out of 10.
