The end of the eighties marked the doomy beginning
Taking elements from some of their favorite bands including Trouble, Pentagram,
Sabbath, St.Vitus, Melvins, and Candlemass, it assured them of a promising
future. Whether you like to call them stoner rock or doom sludge you can
be assured to like their buzz saw guitar sound and groove-driven rhythms.
They buzz like a bee determined to sting you! The rhythm guitar riffs chug
along and solos fill the album with energy. “North Berwick Witch Trails,”
“Corpsecycle,” and “Oro The Manslayer” proved to
be my favorites. A couple other things to point out, tracks 6, “Fields
Of Zagara” is an instrumental; track 9, “The Garden” is
a seriously long jam, almost twenty-seven minutes; and track 10 is a hidden
track called “Proga - Europa“ which starts with five minutes
of silence. The playing time is over seventy minutes. Fans of these Brits
should love this garden of unearthly delights!
