Out Now On – Neurot Recordings

Doom/Stoner metal has always been hit and miss with me, or should I say more miss tbh.  But seeing I’m a huge Sabbath fan most bands playing this style always sound like second rate copies, so imagine my surprise on hearing this lot!

Drawing on garage, psychedelic and Sabbath influences to create the sound others have tried to nail for years. This super-group couldn’t have nailed it better and we are talking pedigree band members here.
They include Saint Vitus, Melvins, Sleep, Neurosis etc and have mastered the art of playing slowly.Ask any musician and they will tell you it is so hard to play slow and make it sound this good.

So this is a must for lovers of slow fuzz driven early 70s hardrock/metaland on a footnote this album only took three days to record! Wow!
