EXCELLENT low end worshipping, Heavy Doom Metal from Trondheim, Norway with some connections to their local Black Metal scene (namely the bands Unbeing and Grenjar – the latter of which the guitarist Robert and guitarist/vocalist Martin came from). |
Vocals are off in the distance a bit but come across really well – sort of like an angry Buzz from the Melvins or sometimes Al from Sleep but with more reverb in places. TONS of great riffs/tones. Plus a killer doom/psych number at the end. Rather good start.
((((((1)))))) Big, slow thundering riffs & bass with very focused yet often minimal vocals. Rather rockin’ even at this slower pace.
(((((2))))) Hard sluggin’, Doom with some slow to slower break in the chorus and some neat cymbal crashes – gets more interesting in the 2nd part.
((((((3)))))) Riff around 00:59 mark is very reminiscent of Thorr’s Hammer’s “Norge”. Cool, brooding vocals, and heavy riffs, nice basic drumming + plenty of low end rumble (without bass). Oh yeah, “Dopesmoker” alert!
((((((4))))))) Sloooow burning heavy psych not far from Bardo Pond at their utmost heavy, Bong, etc. Soooo good – soooo whoa hazzzzzy.
