Alastor are a band from Sweden that plays a psychedelic form of stoner doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Black Magic"which will be released in March by Twin Earth Records.
Distorted amp sounds start off the ep along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later as well as some dark sounding melodies and the music is mostly rooted in a traditional style of doom metal and when guitar leads are added onto the recording they are done in a very melodic yet old school fashion.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and you can also h ear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the vocals are mostly done in a 70's doom metal fashion and there is also a brief use of psychedelic drones and all of the tracks stick to a very slow musical direction.
Alastor plays a musical style that is rooted in 70's style doom metal while the stoner elments gives the songs a more modern feeling, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism and Black Magick themes.
In my opinion Alastor are a very great sounding psychedelic stoner doom metal band and if you a re a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Black magic". 8 out of 10.
