Dopelord- Magick Rites (2012)
Band request from Poland.
Dopelord have chosen a name heavy with imagery which
conjures up what sort of music they play - classic stoner doom.
And make no mistake, they worship at the bloodstained Altar
of the Riff.
Sparing use of old film samples set the tone before the warm,
thick fuzz guitars start to go into riff overload. Reverb drenched
vocals add to the overall tone while the solos are slow and epic.
The slower pace tracks get the head nodding and my volume
button keeps getting turned up.
If you have any interest in this genre, this is an album you need.
It is well worth the token $3.00 from Bandcamp
