Muur is a solo project from Germany that plays a mixture of ritual and dark ambient soundscapes and this is a review of his 2019 album "Bod" which will be released on July 30th by Cyclic Law.
Ritualistic soundscapes start off the album while the only track that is presented on the recording is over 51 minutes in length. At times the music also gets very experimental and avant garde sounding as well as utilizing some homemade instruments as well as adding in elements of dark ambient.
Voices can also be heard in the background in some parts of the music while the guitar sounds when they are utilized add an influence of black metal onto the recording. Bass guitar riffing can also be heard briefly and also takes the music into more of a drone/doom metal direction, as the album progresses the music also gets more tribal and shamanistic sounding as well as introducing throat singing onto the recording.
Muur plays a musical style that takes ritual, dark ambient soundscapes, drone and doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very dark while the music focuses mostly on occult themes.
In my opinion Muur is a very great sounding mixture of ritual, dark ambient soundscapes, drone and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. 8 out of 10.
