Sometimes, a band/album name, album artwork and/or genre tag in combination can be enough to convince me that I will dig an album; such was the case with Barishi
’s Old Smoke
, its spectacular artwork based around a stag, and its promise of progressive sludge metal. Grey Stag
’s debut also comes from the world of sludge and also adorns eye-catching artwork featuring a stag, so signs were good here as well; however, while I do like Call Of The Mountain
, it’s not charmed me quite in the way I hoped it would.
