Equally parts heavy and psychedelic, this early Sabbath-worshiping Swedish trio will rock you with crushing riffs and a fuzzy atmosphere that puts the 420blazeit in Monolord.

Kind of forgettable. There are a few good hooks scattered throughout but on a whole this album is lacking some oomph.

Yeah, this blows. Feels really thin and lackluster.

Alright album. It has it's moments but I agree that it does get drawn out at points.

PS. Speaking of lords:

Stoner has always the best covers ever. Very nice suggestions, Mechanist. I've been actively trying to educate myself when it comes to stoner. Those albums will be listened to.

I still can't get enough of that riff in the second track of this album.

Looks like these guys are gonna be performing at Roadburn next year, no big deal.

In that case... I might see them if there are no clashes at the time. That way they might redeem themselves.

This is still one of my all-time favorite albums and nothing anyone can say will ever convince me that it isn't a contemporary masterpiece of music.
