Wrote this review for the December Doom Charts and
realised that I not not featured it here. So here it is.
These Aussie rockers have come up with a compelling and
addictive slice of heavy sounds that just gets better the more
you play it. NWOBHM rubs shoulders with Motorhead and Trouble
giving them a template from which they launch blistering
salvos of hook laden riffs and fist pumping tunes.
This is rumbling Stoner/Doom with it’s own identity – not just
another band ripping off some shit from the past and thinking
that is enough. The album sounds like live jamming or is the fact that a
power trio has enough space in the music to let the tunes breathe with
atmosphere and feeling? Whatever the case, you can feel the sweat of the
players and hum of amps being overloaded. Oh yeah, if that ain’t enough,
the brain frying solos that overlay the lyrics of misty, murky
Lovecraftian terrors are sublime.
