Spiralism are a band from Finland that plays a psychedelic form of post metal with elements of doom metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Chakras" which will be released in December by Inverse Records.
Psychedelic sound effects and powerful sounding bass guitars start off the album and after a couple of minutes post rock style guitars are added into the music along with a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts and the music starts to add more melody and metal influences after awhile along with a mixture of growls, screams and clean singing.
Most of the tracks on the recording are very long and epic in length and also focuses more of a psychedelic sound that is heavily influenced by 70's rock but more up to date and at times the music also brings in a stoner rock vibe to some of the tracks and a few songs are instrumentals and a good portion of the music has an improv and experimental feeling at times.
Spiralism plays a very heavy form of psychedelic rock that also brings in some of the heaviness of doom and post metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occult themes.
In my opinion Spiralism are a very great sounding psychedelic post metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sophia" "Gnosis" and "Passages of Nuit". 8 out of 10.
