The music style of Los Angeles-based band Deathchant is categorized as psychedelic heavy proto-metal and the self-titled debut album promises an unpredictable sonic journey that will certainly trigger curiosity.
The album opener “Pessimist” is characterized by an interesting songwriting approach which ensures an overload of fuzzy rock tonalities in the guitar work and enigmatic psychedelic vibes amplified by filtered vocals but there are also unexpected noise oriented dissonant moments.
“Control” can deliver peaceful guitar melodies while a wilder series of stoner rock influenced rhythmic grooves dominates the majority of the song as guitars confidently deliver extra gritty riffs, surreal psychedelic accents and even a doom tinged heavier momentum enriched by spacey distortion and feedback.
On “Ritual” fiery galloping guitar riffs diligently build massive groovy dynamics that again showcases an intense stoner rock influence while the dreamy nature of the song will come to life with the inspiring darkened melodic guitar jams.
Since the very beginning “Hex” offers a particularly groovy sonic ensemble focusing on majestic guitar driven grooves fueled by energetic classic heavy rock tonalities that will generate a spontaneous instrumental jam.
Deathchant are eager to develop a unique sonic pathway drawing inspiration from an intriguing blend of diverse music genres and the debut eponymous album certainly stands out for the psychedelic nuances and the entertaining retro heavy rock soul.
