3 stars My Fruit Psychobells... A Seed Combustible is the debut studio album from experimental metal act Maudlin of the Well. Iīve read a lot about Maudlin of the Well in the last ten years but this is my first encounter with their music.

The music is very eclectic, drawing influences from many genres both within the metal genre and beyond the boundaries of that genre. Death metal, melodic metal, psychadelic rock, Avant garde rock and both growling, clean male vocals and female vocals. Maudlin of the Well is the kind of band that you canīt really catagorize. Personally Iīm in doubt if thatīs a strength or a weakness but if you like all sorts of genres mixed together this might suit your taste.

The musicianship is really good and itīs hard not to be impressed with the bandīs abilities to shift from one mood and genre to another throughout the songs.

The production is the biggest weakness on My Fruit Psychobells... A Seed Combustible. What a horrible sound. itīs really annoying and totally ruins my listening pleasure.

This is very intriguing music IMO. I might not enjoy every section on the album but Iīm entertained the whole time. Iīm missing a bit of cohesiveness in the compositions but Iīm sure that will come on the next albums. Iīm intrigued but not really excited so this is a 3 star rating.

UMUR | 3/5 |
