Time for some doom!
This UK band is relatively unknown, but on the strength of this release hopefully that will change. This is blues-y doom with plenty of feeling. The singer has a very good voice that fits perfectly with the blues-y feel of the music on display here and is extremely enjoyable. I am listening to this in the car at the moment and it is one of those releases that even though you know is good; it just gets better the more you explore it.
The songwriting here is of a high standard, and something that you could be reasonably expected to hear from a band on their second or third album, and not just their first EP. This bodes very well for their next release and I look forward to it immensely!
Favourite track? Probably Unknown Mistress.
I hope there are good things in the future for this band, as they deserve the recognition and respect afforded similar (-ish) UK doom veterans such as the wonderful Electric Wizard.
A very enjoyable release that should reside happily in anyone’s collection. Good songs and good jams? Get it now!
Don’t take my word for it – have a listen…
