Blackened Doom is all too often limited to discussions of bleak, suicidal bands who are not so much playing Doom as playing Black Metal really slow. Neptunian Sun are an entirely instrumental band from Spain who are playing crunchy, riff-driven Doom with a kick of Blackened tremolo guitar work and a definite feel of atmospheric, post-black moodiness. The sound is layered and rather complex, with long songs that pack in a lot of dynamic and variation, so they never feel boring or like they go on too long, despite that the songs range from 8-10 minutes long, with the exception of two shorter interludes.
I just really enjoy this album. It's got a fresh sound and really inventive and satisfying songwriting. It creates a powerful mood and then expands on it, making for a really encompassing, involving experience. This band is unsigned, and this disc was released to very little fanfare a few years ago, but it is well worth checking out.
