Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2019-10-02 
Incredible heavy dark noise sludge doom from London. Trio, guitar bass drums, two men and a woman. Bleak and beautiful, drop dead gorgeous stuff. Long tracks smack of heavy noise wash band Nadja, general darkness of Swans, but alas, all dark doom – crushing, heavy downtuned guitars (if they were any more downtuned you could probably play jump rope with the strings). The best stuff ever hands down. To top it off its mastered by James Plotkin (see Khanate, Old and his work with Nadja, Sunn, Earth, Isis, KK Null). And it shows. This is about as high end as it gets. All tracks long and perfect except a ballad of sorts which feature female vocals. All tracks fantastic, play any of them.

1) (11:40) onslaught of heavy head nodding plod, after 4 minutes a calm appears, the dark plod arises heavier this time at 8 min 2) (6:40) heaviness and glacial start smacks of Nadja, female voice over 3) (12:59) quiet spacey intro but becomes heavy as hell 4) (3:34) quiet dark and sad, female vocs 5) (16:22) completely crushing, nuff said
