Longhouse are a band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada that plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Earth From Water" which will be released on May 27th by Sunmask.
Clean playing and atmospheric sounds start off the album along with some drums a few seconds later and after a minute the music goes into a heavier direction as well as introducing sludge style screams and death metal growls onto the recording and the riffs also bring in melodies into some parts of the songs.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to t hem while the solos and leads also bring in a touch of post metal while also mixing in some 70's metal elements at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both slow and mid paced parts and there is also a brief use of spoken words and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length
Longhouse plays a musical style that takes sludge and doom metal and mixes them with with a very heavy vocal approach to create a very dark sounding recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover various spiritual and occult concepts.
In my opinion Longhouse are a very great sounding 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 "Eternal Forest" and "Earth From Water". 8 out of 10.
