Djinn And Miskatonic are a band from India that plays a mixture of doom, sludge, stoner and death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Forever In The Realm" which was released by Transcending Obscurity India.
"7 Year Witch" begins with with some spoken word parts about witchcraft which leads up to some heavy doom metal guitar riffs and drums as well as some bass guitars and after awhile melodic clean singing vocals make their way into the song as well as some deep death metal growls which also leads to the guitar riffing utilizing some melody and as the song moves on their is a brief use of ritualistic chanting that comes in and out before speeding up in certain sections.
"Book Of The Fallen" begins with some heavy bass guitars which lead up to some drums and heavy guitar riffs and then a minute later melodic vocals and death metal growls make their way into the song along with a small amount of high pitched screams and after awhile minutes dark sounding melodies make their way into the guitar riffing.
"Vulcan Forge" begins with some background people sounds and bass guitars and a minute melodic vocals make their way into the song as well as some 70s sounds which also help out when the vocals get slightly more aggressive.
'Voice From The Tomb" begins with some demonic chanting and serves as an intro for the next song.
"Weird Tales" begins with some heavy bass guitar riffs before adding in some drums a few seconds later and after a couple of minutes psychedelic guitar solos and leads become a part of the song as well as some melodic guitar riffs and as time goes by melodic clean singing starts making its way into the song as well as some growls and screams and towards the end there is a brief use of spoken word parts as well as some psychedelic sound effects and the song closes with some doom/death metal style guitar riffing.
Song lyrics cover Occultism, Witchcraft, Lovecraft and Alcohol themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Djinn And Miskatonic are a very great sounding hybrid of doom, sludge, stoner and death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, yo should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "7 Year Witch" and "Weird Tales". RECOMMENDED BUY.
