Trio from Fresno: dystopian sludgey doom metal. Impossible not to liken to Sabbath, slow phrased vocals a la the classic stuff, even sounds like Oz. Lyrically too, dark yet inspirational. Riffage is very Iommi, Geeza. Female background vocals add texture in places, the estrogen keeping this away from sausage-fest brodoom. Great stuff. Pull out your old Zeni Geva, Nebula, Melvins. All songs pretty similar, can't go wrong with any.|
1) (4:17) sweet leaf march/plod. 2) (3:17) kinda doomy, slow 4/4 lyric delivery cements Ozzy comparison, bridge brings in female background vocs 3)* (4:56) creepy howls, wolflike in intro, then more sludge, obligatory quiet down in bridge 4)* (4:01) religious themed creepy sample in intro, and bridge, more sludge, was wondering when the full on church theme would appear 5) (3:12) starts with the fuzzbox off, "pretty", of course gets heavy. 6) (3:24) again mid paced sludge 7)* (4:02) just great stuff, relentless 8)* (3:33) creepy film sample intro, title track, does the double time gallop thing toward end 9)* (4:38) has a more relentless feel 10) (2:54) slightly different production, more excellent doom, "sick sick demon"
