Obelyskkh are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays a psychedelic mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "The Providence" which was released by Exile On Mainstream.
Distorted amp sounds along with some drum beats start off the album along with some heavy sludge and doom metal riffing a few seconds later and spoken word parts can also be heard at times and clean singing stoner vocals are a very huge part of the recording along with most of the tracks being long and epic in length.
Aggressive sludge style screams are added into some parts of the songs while the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and after awhile psychedelic elements also start making their presence known and when guitar leads a re utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and as the album progresses a brief use of acoustic guitars can be heard along with one track being instrumental and when the music speeds up a small amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also adds in a touch of black metal.
Obelyskkh creates another recording t hat remains true to the psychedelic mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Greek Mythology, Drugs, Revelations, and Jesco White themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Obelyskkh and if you are a fan of psychedelic, stoner, sludge, and doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Raving Ones" and "Marzanna''. 8 out of 10.
