Matalobos are a band from Mexico that plays a melodic mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2015 ep.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and after awhile melodic guitar leads and death metal growls are added into the music and all 3 of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the music also brings in elements of modern metal.
Spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with some screams that almost have a black metal feeling to them and the band also brings in a small amount of classical guitars and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and there is also a brief use of clean singing and all of the music sticks to a slow musical direction.
Matalobos plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in doom metal and they mix it in with melodic death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover darkness, depression and murder.
In my opinion Matalobos are a very great sounding mixture of melodic death and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Black Stone Walls". 8 out of 10.
