Hellhookah are a Traditional Doom Metal band from Lithuania. This is their début album.
This is Traditional Doom Metal for fans of bands like Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus, Pentagram and Trouble. The album is 35 minutes long and has 7 tracks, one of which is a Saint Vitus cover.
With both eyes firmly on the past, Hellhookah peel off the riffs that mark the style and these songs are easily digested.
I find that these songs are at their best the slower and more moody that the band play, such as on tracks like Endless Serpents.
The singer has a decent voice that does the job required. There’s no complaints in this department.
This entire album has a very authentic sound; it could have been recorded decades ago and just recently unearthed.
A not-unpleasant way to spend half an hour – have a listen and see what you think.
