The Atlas Moth/The One Amongst The Weed Fields/Candlelight Records/2010 CD Review

The Atlas Moth are a band from Chicago, Illinois that plays a psycheldelic form of stoner/sludge/doom metal and this is a review of their 2010 ep "The One Amongst The Weed Fields" which will be released by Candlelight Records.

Drums are mostly slow to midpaced drumming with no fast playing or blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark and doomy tone.

Rhythm guitars are mostly slow to midpaced stoner/sludge metal riffs that are heavily influenced by 60's rock, while th lead guitars are very 70's inspired guitar solos that have a heavy psycheldelic edge to them.

Vocals are a mmixture of sludge style screams and clean singing vocals, while the lyrics cover everyday life type of themes with a heavy doss of drug use, as for the production it sounds very professional and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.

In my opinion The Atlas Moth are a very good stoner/sludge metal band that should appeal to all fans of this genre. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "California Dreamin" and "Golden". RECEMMONDED BUY.
