Metal / Maudlin of the Well
« on: September 19, 2007, 02:23:34 AM »
A friend of mine recommended Maudlin of the Well to me, so I downloaded their discography and listened to a few of the songs so far, and they're pretty fucking awesome, to say the least. I usually don't listen to this kind of music though.

Some warnings:

Clean singing and some of the lyrics will likely turn off VBER KVLT METVL FANS. Though they do use harsh vocals when the occasion calls for it.

As far as I can tell, they use mostly acoustic instruments like double bass and trumpet, and the electric guitar and drums are almost more of an accompaniment in certain song segments, and is somewhat similar to songs by Opeth, so if you think that's boring shit, chances are this band is as well. They are definitely closer to classical music than metal though they do have their 'headbanging' riff moments.

On the whole, the music is composed fairly well, and the music gives you an otherworldly sense of some sort.

I think their strong point is that they contrast the harsh metal segments, which could represent life's more abrasive or exciting times, with acoustic segments, which can represent more peaceful, and even duller times.

Any thoughts on them, if you've listened to them?
