The latest opus from frontman / guitarist Necroskull, bassist Emily Witch, and drummer David Wilbrahammer is a superb documentation of supernatural heaviness. From its monstrous riffs and crushing rhythmic pulses, to pulverizing drums that occasionally emit a blast-beat or two, this is music meant to be played at maximum volume.
Sinister and pounding, with the occasional tinge of psychedelia, these songs are massive creations inspired by such original overlords of oppressive sonics like Cathedral, Reverend Bizarre or Electric Wizard.
