Rozamov are a band from Boston, Massachusetts that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "This Mortal Road" which will be released in March as a joint effort between battleground and Dullest Records.
A very dark and heavy doom metal sound starts off the album along with some melodic riffing and the music also mixes in the heaviness of sludge and after awhile clean singing stoner vocals are added onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with some progressive elements.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and angry screams are also a very huge part of the recording and elements of post metal can also be heard at times and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic style and they also add in a brief use of acoustic guitars and spoken word parts and the album also always sticks to a very slow musical direction.
On this recording Rozamov keeps the doom, sludge and stoner elements while not being as heavy as previous releases and adding in more progressive and post metal influences this time around, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Rozamov and if you are a fan of stoner, sludge, doom and post metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Serpent Cult" and "Inhumanation". 8 out of 10.
