Just once glance at the title and cover art and your pretty sure what kind of metal this is going to be. Stoner. One of the genres I was hoping to gleam more appreciation for was the stoner sub genre of doom metal. To me, it’s always been dominated by Sleep with Electric Wizard picking up the slack. Acrimony are definitely playing in the same vein as said bands, but they seem to approach it from a more light hearted point of view. The songs are long and jammy, psychedelic and fuzzed out. Things you would expect from this genre, but oh so catchy. There’s some incredible guitar playing going on in this album. I’m not a fan of the term “desert rock” but if this was a desert, it’s a desert on Mars. While your on hallucinogenic.
