In the mood for some doom metal? Search no further as probably one of the best doom metal albums from 2018 is being delivered by Italian Messa. Feast for Water rises above the usually strict boundaries of doom metal and flirts with everything that you possibly can imagine for a doom band, jazz, blues, sludge, heavy doom and loads of psychedelic parts.
The whole album breathes atmosphere, even the smallest protons, electrons and neutrons in your body will experience the atmosphere while listening to Feast for Water. All the members have a different musical taste, it varies from black metal to dark ambient or jazz and all those different influences created a psychedelic masterpiece.
Feast for Water can without any doubt be categorized under doom metal, let there be no mistakes here about that but Messa jumped borders and defined new borders without becoming too experimental. If you know the band from its debut album Belfry from 2016 you’re in for a pleasant surprise, while Belfry was more orientated in the occult doom has Feast for Water only parts that can be labeled as occult doom. So stop reading, start listening and be amazed.
