Psychodramas: Breaking the Knots of Twisted Synapse

Psychodramas: Breaking the Knots of Twisted Synapse (often shortened to Psychodramas) is the third studio album from the English experimental doom metal band Camel of Doom. It was released on 3 December 2012, and was reissued on vinyl on 1 November 2014 by Voice of Azram Records.

It was recorded, mixed and mastered at Priory Recording Studios by Esoteric mainman and long time collaborator Greg Chandler, and produced by Kris Clayton

Musical style Edit

Melding together influences from doom metal, death metal, stoner rock and 70's psychedelic and progressive rock genres, the album aims to be as heavy as it is trippy, as melodic as it is dissonant and as beautiful as it is twisted.

The album takes the foundations built by earlier albums and adds to them, retaining the bands trademark ambient saxophone infused doom and creating new sounds with forays into blissed out vocoded post-rock and early 90's death metal, with brief stops into dark ambient and funeral doom along the way.
