UDOL – EL REGNE
You ready for some ‘epic doom metal’?! Epic doom metal provide by a duo?! For up next on this Friday Freebie session is UDOL and their EL REGNE album! On the Nafra Records roster, the duo hails from Catalonia, Spain and bring you fantasy styled doom metal of a glorious nature. Huge in gestures and grand in scale, listening to this will make you feel like a king! A king that fought the devil and won!
James Sweetlove wrote about it on Cave Dweller Music: “The other element that I mentioned worthy of praise is the album’s guitar work, finds a fantastic balance of heaviness, atmosphere and catchiness. There are headbangable moments throughout the album driven by killer guitar leads and rhythms. While the album is epic doom inspired, there are many moments that shy away from this and draw in elements of sludge, psych rock and heavy metal. These heavier sludge elements result in lower tuned, higher distortion guitar parts, some of which is goddamn crushing. The more psych-tinged elements really break things up nicely, bringing some groove and free flowing jam style energy into the mix. All of this is compounded by the energy of the drums that perfectly match and elevate whatever the guitar is doing. The two work in perfect tandem with each other and the closeness of the two musicians really shows.”
“Overall, this is one hell of an album and one that I can’t recommend highly enough. If this is the band’s first full-length outing, then I cannot wait to see how their career unfolds after this. If you’re a fan of epic doom, then do not miss this.”
Their own words: “UDOL (HOWL) is an epic-doom duo formed by Adrià (drums, vocals) and Joan (guitars). Their music sits on heavy doomed guitar loops and drums, and it is caracterized by an epic reverbetared clean vocal. Their heavy music is dense, sung in catalan and based on a dark fantasy concept. In their upcoming release, “El Regne” (The Reign) UDOL, tells the story of a deal with the Devil, causing the rise and fall of a Kingdom, as well as the obliteration of known civilisation. Their new LP (Nafra Records, CKUD Records, Error! Music) will include an illustrated booklet by Estel Jubany Fradera. The album was recorded at Guisla Music, mixed by Enric Verdaguer of Saturna, and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Kreator, Municipal Waste, Summerlands…)”
