Midhaven are a band from India that plays a progressive mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Spellbound" which was released by Universal Music Group".
A very drone orientated sound starts off the album along with some dark sounding synths which also leads up to more of a melodic and heavy musical direction and after the intro the music starts going for more of a sludge and doom metal direction as well as using a great mixture of both growls and clean singing vocals.
High pitched screams can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when solos and leads are utilized they bring a very melodic and progressive sound to the recording and some of the riffing also brings in elements of commercialized metal and hard rock and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of clean playing.
Midhaven plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal that is very heavy yet melodic, progressive and atmospheric at the same time, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and mythology themes.
In my opinion Midhaven are a very great sounding progressive and atmospheric mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Seeking The Divine" "Fall Of Olympus" and "Death Row". 8 out of 10.
