El Caminno/Gold Of The Great Deceiver/Night Tripper/2013 CD Review



El  Camino  are  a  band  from  Sweden  that  plays  a  mixture  of  doom  metal,  occult  and  stoner  rock and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "Gold  Of  The  Great  Deceiver"  which  was  released  by  Night  Tripper.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  no  fast  drumming  or  blast  beats  being  present on  this  recording,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  riffs  that  combine  traditional  and  doom./death  metal  with  70's  occult  rock  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  as  well  as  having  some  melody  and  stoner  elements  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  at  times,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  dark  and  emlodic  sounding  doom/70's  hard  rock  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  are  mostly  rough  sounding  vocals  that  utilize  some  melody  as  well  as  the  aggressive  elements  of  early  90's  doom/death  metal  along  with  some  spoken  word  samples  being  used  at  times,  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  satanism,  and  occult  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy,  dark  and  old  school  sound  to  it  while  you  can  see  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording  as  well  as  some  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.  

  In  my  opinion  El  Camino  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  doom  metal  and  occult  rock  and  if  you  are  a f an  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Black  Witch  Love"  "The  One  Of  Evil"  and  "The  Wizard".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
