The Canyon Observer are a band from Slovenia that plays a mixture of sludge, doom and post metal and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Chapter II: These Binds Will Set You Free" which was released by KAPA Records.
Drums are all slow playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars are all slow riffs that combine sludge, doom and post metal together to create a sound of their own along with a great amount of heavy distortion as well as some soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding post metal guitar leads that do not really turn into solos.
Vocals range from deep growls, high pitched sludge screams and some clean singing being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover a concept of dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, dark, heavy and professional sound with the songs being long and epic in length and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion The Canyon Observer are a very great sounding heavy hybrid of sludge, doom and post metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "As We Surrender To Lust" and "We Can Descend Into The Unknown". RECOMMENDED BUY.
