Rome In Monochrome are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of doom metal, shoegaze, slowcore, and post rock and this is a review of their 2018 album "Away From Light" which will be released on March 16th by Bad Mood Man Music.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album along with some melodic vocals being added onto the recording a minute later before going into a heavier doom metal direction while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic post rock style and after awhile death metal growls are added onto the recording.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the music also brings in a decent amount of clean playing, slowcore and shoegaze elements and as the album progresses black metal screams can also be heard briefly along with some stringed instruments also being added onto a later track, one of the songs is an instrumental and the music always sticks to a very slow direction.
Rome In Monochrome plays a musical style that takes doom metal, shoegaze, slowcore and post rock and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Rome In Monochrome are a very great sounding mixture of doom metal, shoegaze, slowcore and post rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Solitary King" 'December Remembrances" and "Only The Cold". 8 out of 10.
