Ommadon are a band from Scotland that has had an album reviewed before in this zine and plays a primitive mixture of drone and doom metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "End Times" which will be released in May as a joint effort between Dry Cough Records, At War With False Noise, DGRecords and Medusa Crush Recordings.
Atmospheric sounding drones start off the album along with some distorted amp sounds a few seconds later while the bass guitars bring in the heaviness of sludge as well as both of the tracks being mostly instrumental and also being very long and epic in length and at times the music has an improv feeling to it.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they done in a very dark and melodic fashion while the guitar riffing is mostly influenced by doom metal along with the music also getting very primitive at times as well as the vocals being mostly death metal growls when they are utilized briefly and on the second track evolved into sludge style screams and the music always sticks to a very slow direction.
On this recording Ommadon continues their primitive mixture of drone and doom metal while also introducing a few seconds of death metal growls and sludge style onto the recording and the production sounds very dark and heavy.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ommadon and if you are a fan of drone and doom metal, you should check out this album. * out of 10.
