Sapata are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of heavy and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Satanibator" which was released by Inverse Records.
Atmospheric soundscapes and nature sounds start off the album before going into more of a heavier doom metal direction where you can also hear all of t he musical instruments that are present on the recording while the female vocals also gives the songs more of a traditional feeling while also being very melodic.
While the music is heavily rooted in the 80's it still sounds very modern at the same time along with the solos and leads being done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and when clean playing is utilized it gives the music more of a 70's blues rock feeling and when the music speeds up briefly it adds in a small amount of tremolo picking and blast beats as well as showing a slight black metal influence and as the album progresses acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Sapata plays a musical style that takes heavy and doom metal and mixes them together with some modern influences to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Egypt, Occultism, Darkness and Depression themes.
In my opinion Sapata are a very great sounding mixture of heavy and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Styx" "Sex Magic" and "Full Power". 8 out of 10.
