Your Review:

This band must love genre tags since they describe their sound as "doom/sludge/black", but I don't hear much of the latter. This is a simple enough sound, like a slower and more deliberate Sourvein, with small hints of Eyehategod and maybe Venom in some of the anti-melodies that are displayed here. The band plugs away at a fairly plodding tempo for the most part which is all fine but when there's the occaisonal mid tempo section (like near the end of "Strip Nude for your Killer") you definitely wish they had more of them. It just sort of sits there, you know? It's somewhat heavy and there's a few decent riffs scattered throughout but nothing that great.

Perhaps there need to be a few leads (those annoying vocal lines in Caligua don't count)? Maybe the vocalist needs to shut up a bit more? All in all I just can't sustain my interest. Perhaps some more tempo changes instead of the same repetitive droning noise. The band makes a decent racket throughout but perhaps a bit too much reliance on the one riffing pattern/style.

I can't see myself listening to this again. If you're a fan of slow and screamy doom/sludge you have probably already heard better examples. 3.5/10
