Jointstereo are a band from Russia that plays a progressive mixture of doom/death metal, atmospheric and post rock and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Circles" which was released by Another Side Records.
Clean guitar playing starts off the ep and also brings in elements of both progressive and post rock into the bands musical style and the solos and leads are very melodic and when vocals are added into the music they are in a clean singing direction and the band also brings in a great amount of ambient, atmospheric and depressive rock elements into the songs.
All of the music sticks to a very slow musical direction along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and after awhile the music starts adding in more heavy doom metal elements as well as some screams and growls that are very heavily influenced by death metal which they also combine with a touch of post metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both calm and heavy parts.
Jointstereo plays a musical style that goes for a modern style of progressive and post rock/metal which they also mix in with the heaviness of doom and death metal to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, mythological and depressive themes.
In my opinion Joinstereo are a very great sounding progressive mixture of doom/death metal, atmospheric and post rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE " Ouroboros" and "Fractual Universe". 8 out of 10.
