Seven tracks of decent 70's-influenced trad doom metal, set apart by the unique vocals of frontwoman Malicia. She sounds more suited to some 90's Riot Grrrl band and initially is a little off-putting, but stick with it and it actually complements the music very nicely. If you're looking for something a little different in the over-crowded trad doom scene give these spaniards a try.
Favorite track: Dead Zone.
I don’t think there’s a band on this planet that has quite captured the magic we know from the Maryland Doom Metal legends PENTAGRAM until we heard the first few chords of this new Doom Metal band from Spain, named MISTY GREY. MISTY GREY is chalked full of heavy fuzzed out guitar riffs that sound as if they plucked right out of classic PENTAGRAM albums from the 70’s and 80’s, but what really sets them apart is the extremely unique female vocals that blend in with this madness. The way the music comes out sets an unsettling tone and atmosphere that thick, dark, rich, and full of emotion. There’s also a really cool and familiar 70’s BLACK SABBATH vibrating on some level throughout the songs along with everything else mentioned above. PENTAGRAM and BLACK SABBATH fans will not be disappointed, the only thing fans might struggle enjoying are the unique vocals, but in this case, we think they fit like a glove here.
