Condor are a band from Columbia that plays a mixture of heavy, doom and death metal and this is a review of their album "Duin" which will be released in 2015 by Gommorah Records.
Soft acoustic guitars start off the album and they bring a classical music feeling to the recording and after a couple of minutes the music goes into a more heavy and melodic direction as well as bringing in solos and leads that utilize a great amount of talent and skill as well as being a very huge part of all the tracks.
After the intro the music goes for more of an old school doom metal direction while also adding in fast parts and a great amount of blast beats and the music also uses a great amount of death metal growls along with a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and acoustic guitars also make their return in certain sections of the recording.
At times a small amount of spoken word parts are brought into the music along with some synths which are only used briefly and elements of progressive rock and a few of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while later on during the album clean singing vocals are brought in at times and one of the later tracks also brings in a small amount of black metal influences.
Condor plays a style of doom/death metal that is very melodic and progressive at times while also bringing in a touch of traditional metal which also gives the recording an old school feeling, the production sound s very dark and heavy while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover Philosophy, Identity and Nationalism.
In my opinion Condor are a very great sounding mixture of heavy, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "El Lamento de Penelpe" "Condordale" and "Duin". 8 out of 10.
