Dopethrone - Electric Wizard

Oh my. Down-tuned, grinding, monolithic doom metal, achieving unprecedented depths, Pandaemonium, uncompromising worship of weed, malevolence, dirge, dense walls of sound, extended planet-sized riff-monsters, never exceeding a snail's pace, somehow managing to build in intensity, from single note guitar lines to huge power chords with deliberate maddening certainty.

Don't need to be a metal head to see the glory.

Oddi wrth y brawd
we love you

Wahey! have had this a while now and it gets brought out whenever a certain mood takes me. Check out side project Crippled Black Pjoeniz as well. As a matter of fact I may play it tonight as an antidote to the shoegaze retrospective (introspective?) jag I've been on whilst working away these past few days.

That should of course have read Crippled Black Phoenix. And I've not even had a drink. Maybe it's time I did. What do you say good angel on t'other shoulder? So that's unanimous then!
