Brazil's Jupiterian have returned with a new recording that continues the sludge, funeral doom and death metal mixture of previous releases and this is a review of their 2017 album "Terraforming" which will be released in November by Transcending Obscurity Records.
Field recordings start off the album along with some powerful sounding bass guitars a few seconds later which also leads up to a heavier musical direction while the vocals are a mixture of growls and screams and a touch of black metal can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while elements of drone and ambient are also used at times along with the slow riffing also bringing in the heaviness of sludge and funeral doom metal and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and one track also brings in session work from Maurice De Jong of Grnaw Their Tongues and he gives the music more of an experimental and avant garde vibe while all of the songs stick to a mostly a slow musical direction and clean playing along with blast beats can also be heard briefly.
Jupiterian creates another recording that remains true to their mixture of sludge, funeral doom and death metal of previous releases while also getting more experimental this time around, the production sounds very professional 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 sludge, funeral doom and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unearthly Glow" and "Sol". 8 out of 10.
