Mare Infinitum are a band from Russia that plays an atmospheric mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Alien Monolith God" which was released by Solitude Productions.
A very distorted and melodic sound starts off the album along with some solos and leads that use a great amount of melody and also dominate throughout the recording and after awhile the music starts getting a lot more heavier and death metal growls are added into the music along with some atmospheric sounding synths.
A good portion of the songs are long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the clean singing vocals bring in elements of epic doom metal into the songs and some of the screams and whispers bring a touch of black metal onto the recording.and some of the sound effects also bring an experimental feeling to the recording while the synths also bring in a touch of ambient at times and all of the songs stick to a slow musical direction.
Mare Infinitum plays a very slow musical style that combines the epic traditional doom and doom/death together with a great amount of ambient and atmospheric elements to create a musical style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover sorrow, pain and loneliness themes along with some lyrics inspired by the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion Mare Infinitum are a very great sounding atmospheric mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Alien Monolith God" and "The Sun That Harasses My Solitude". 8 out of 10.
