Mhonos are a band from France that has been featured before in this zine and plays a ritualistic form of doom metal with some elements of drone, industrial and black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "LXXXVII" which will be released on November 19th by Dead Seed Productions.
Ritualistic drum beats start off the album while drones are also used quite a bit throughout the recording along with bass guitars also being used as an instruments at times and some of the vocals also give the music more of a grim black metal vibe as well as all of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
Element s of industrial can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a small amount of guitar amp noises while the riffs also bring in the heaviness of doom and sludge metal as well as one of the tracks being an instrumental and all of t he songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Mhonos creates another recording that remains true to the ritualistic style of doom metal from previous releases while elements of drone, industrial and black metal are also used at times, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover Occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Mhonos and if you are a fan of ritualistic doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I" and "III". 8 out of 10.
