Review:

Show Of Bedlam is a Doom metal band coming from Quebec, Canada. It is consisted of 5 people, fronted by female vocalist Paulina Richards. “Transfiguration” is the name of their second album which is coming out this year. Their first album was named “Roont” and consisted of 5 songs. Since their last album, there have been changes in their roster, such as a new bass and a new guitar player.

The band doesn’t have a strict metal genre to which it belongs to, they are a mix of doom, stoner, sludge metal which can be seen in their music.

As from the start, the ambient feel of the music gives you a dark picture of it all. Through every minute of the album the darkness from the growling vocals, low tuned guitars and filling guitar riff to the banging drums, give you chills. Also the added effects in the mixing just complements the full experience which the band is striving for. The slow tempo of the songs mixed with the instruments in all correct form give a really dark scene of it all. Looking in general for all the above genres the album is a total five out of five because it is a good representative of how an album its genre should look like !
