The Morningside are a band from Russia that plays a very progressive and melodic mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Yellow' which was released by BadMoodMan Music.
Atmospheric sounding synths start off the album and a few seconds later clean playing is added onto the recording and they also add in a touch of post rock and after a couple of minutes the music gets heavier and the guitar leads start going for more of a post metal style and the songs bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts.
A good majority of the tracks are very long and epic in length and on the second tracks grim black metal screams are added onto the recording and the guitar riffing brings in a great amount of doom metal elements along with a great amount of melody and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses melodic singing can be heard briefly and some of t he riffs bring in a touch of melodic death metal and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
The Morningside plays a musical style that takes black metal, melodic doom and death metal and mixes it in with progressive and post rock elements to create a musical style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover nature themes.
In my opinion the Morningside are a very great sounding melodic and progressive mixture of black, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "As A Pilgrim" and "Clocks". 8 out of 10.
