Qaal Babalon is a dark and heavy album that combines elemnts of sludge metal, doom metal, and black metal. The music is slow and crushing, with a thick atmosphere of dread and despair. The vocals are guttural and tortured, and the lyrics are about apocalypse, occultism, and the end of the world.
The album is named after the Babylonian goddess Babalon, who is often associated with chaos and destruction. The album's cover art depicts a woman with horns and a tail, surrounded by flames. This image is a perfect representation of the album's dark and apocalyptic themes.
The album was produced by Francesco Donadello (Oderus Urungus, Mortuary Drape) and mixed by Simone Mularoni (DGM). The production is excellent, with the music sounding huge and powerful. The guitars are heavy and distorted, the drums are pounding, and the bass is deep and rumbling. The vocals are clear and understandable, even though they are very harsh.
The album is a concept album, with the songs telling a story about the coming of the end times. The songs are long and complex, with many changes in tempo and mood. The album is not for the faint of heart, but it is a rewarding listen for fans of heavy metal.
