"When you get into one of these groups, there's only a couple of
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.
