Mombu are a band from Italy that plays grindcore mixed with African Rhythms, jazz and hardcore and this is a review of t heir 2013 album "Niger" which was released by Subsound Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced playing to fast drumming with some blast beats being present on this recording as well as tribal drums, while the saxophones bring in elements of african tribal music and jazz to the music.
Guitars, vocals and song writing are all absent from this recording except for some spoken word parts, while the song themes cover Voodoo and Occultism, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Mombu are a very great sounding hybrid of grind, hardcore, jazz and African Rhythm music and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Niger" "Mighty Mombu" and "The Devour Of Millions". RECOMMENDED BUY.
