ways you can get out. One, is death; the other, is mental institutions."
Absolutely awesome doom, and I'm not even a doom fan...at least not until I heard this! The album kicks in with the hypnotic bashing of Vinum Sabbathi, veering off into the three part solar psychedelia of "Weird Tales"--one of the best tracks on the CD, besides "I, the Witchfinder." I recommend this highly. It's unfortunate that their latest album, "Let us Prey" is so substandard--in general and in comparison-- to the mighty DOPETHRONE. DOPETHRONE is dynamic, creative, and focused. And, if you listen closely, you can hear a bong gurgling under the maelstrom of guitar/drums/bass.
"You see man as a rather dismal creature." "Yes. Why not? Look around...you'll see what's there. Fear, and frightened people who kill what they can't understand."
Yes. The musical equivalent of Eldritch horror.
This is the best stoner metal album ever. Everything is long and thick and heavy, and druggy. Just what a stoner metal band should sound like. Every song is a classic. "Vinum Sabbathi" and "Barbarian" are slow heavy groove songs with some great production. "We Hate You" could be the single off the album, but it's too good for radio. The real fine work off the album are the REALLY long songs that are 10-15 minutes.
"Weird Tales" is the first big song, and my favorite song off the album. There are 3 parts, one is very groove heavy, the 2nd part a lot slower, and the third part the heaviest thing ever recorded on tape. "I, The Witchfinder" is another great epic, with the longest ending ever. Jus Oborn's vocals are just awesome. There's a great effect on his vocals that makes it another instrument, instead of being up and front, like a lot of bands. Then, there's the really cool "Dopethrone," which, despite saying it's 20:48, is actually 10:26. It's still cool though. It's like a longer version of "Barbarian." This is a great album with some unforgettable riffs. Get it as soon as possible if you're a true heavy metal fan.
with ample spacey sounds that blows your mind, and some riffs that will DEFINITLY destroy any speakers that aren't of high quality, these guys put you into a groove like nothing i've heard before.
you gotta be in the mood for it, but when it works, it really works. somehow i can fall asleep to this. also, the riff in Funeralopolis is quite possibly the coolest thing i've ever heard in my life....definitly worth the price of the album just for that one riff. so if you dig the doom, pick this up. if you've stumbled here from kyuss or something, make sure you want to go slow and low. then pick this baby up. good stuff. very good.
if you're a fan of this genre, this is THE album to own. Electric Wizard's back catalogue is great, but doesn't touch this. the new album is garbage. Dopethrone is the one to get.
this isn't an album to listen to with your friends or at a party or whatever. this is practically ambient in nature, when the riffs get really drawn out. get "ready", put on headphones, turn off lights and just let yourself be taken into this unbelieveable record.
very, very highly recommended.
