Sol is a post metal band from Portland, Oregon, U.S. The band consists of five members. ”Black Mountain”, which was released yesterday, is the band’s first full length album.
Four tracks are included in ”Black Mountain”. Their songs are atmospheric and tense. It’s nice how these songs escalate. The songs reach a certain point where let’s say they ”fully unravel”, and after that they deescalate with a form of a really nice outro. Take ”Requiem” for example, which is the album’s third track. This track is my favorite from Black Mountain. Really liked the vocals also. The only thing i didn’t like is that there are only four songs in this release. Let’s hope we’ll hear more from them soon enough.
Overall i think we’re talking a bout a really nice release. Fans of Rosetta, Mouth of the Architect, Year of no Light should definitely check this album out. Here are some links about Sol and ”Black Mountain”:
