I’m no stranger to the bong rattling, evil soaked doom of Electric Wizard, I just haven’t heard this particular album before. Not surprisingly, it sounds like Electric Wizard. Killer riffs, occult, Lovecraft and dreary themes, fuzzed out guitar, creepy organs, all EW standbys. Maybe if I heard this album at the time of it’s release it would have made more of an impact. I’ve read that some consider this to be better than their classic Dopethrone. I’m not sure if I’ll say that, but I don’t really put much stock in which EW album is better. I quite enjoy the other albums I’ve heard by them but they all tend to blur a bit for me. That said, I found my head slowly banging during this album from time to time. Good grooving doom metal.
