Free Moanaa Self-Titled EP

So I need to get back into the groove of not only posting daily, but finally posting some free music again. Maybe if I take things slow with some short posts...

This is a self-released EP from the Poland Sludge/Post-Metal band "Moanaa." I'm hoping that 'Moanaa' translates to something cool in Polish because a simple pun/mis-spelling of a woman's name doesn't really translate into a great band name, especially for a band that sounds so serious. You might think this is just another generic sounding Post-Metal band but this EP does show some promise, I particularly like the vocals. The songs unfortunately do seem to somewhat follow the same pattern of quiet build, loud/heavy middle, atmospheric break, heavy outro. Luckily the music itself is good enough to overshadow the formulaic approach.

The album was mixed and mastered by K-vass who also provided artwork direction and guest vocals for ‘Alight’ & ‘From Deepest Place.’ The band is offering their debut self-titled EP for free download on their bandcamp, and you can find a link to their bandcamp page after the video below. (Now maybe I can finally muster up the energy to write up my Maryland Deathfest wrap-up.)
