Formed in 2006 with the intention of creating a band full of a rolling, thundering mass
of infectious riffs, distorted gut-busting bass, tripped out vocals, relentless beats
and hairy sweaty faces twisted with grins and gurns.

This album is their debut and features just 10 tracks although 14 were recorded in june
of this year in just 7 days.

Right from the start this is classic stoner/doom, 'Movin On' & 'Sea Shanty'could be off sabbaths Vol4 its that good.
'Fire' is a slow doom laden monster, whilst typical of the genre this excels due to some inventive guitar work and exceptional vocals.

'Southern' by nature of its title has a different feel, a bluesy/country feel with lyrics about growing beard and hair and living days in a purple haze!

A change of mood again this time with 'Echoes',it has a laid back groove,then the guitar kicks in half way through with some heavy distortion.

'Innocence' starts with speaker shaking low end rumble that continues to underpin the song throughout.

'Not What You Know' wakes you up from the previous tracks hypnotic qualities with its fast and furious stoner vibes bordering on old school heavy metal.

'Clothes On My Floor' is an awesome blues rock song, and 'The Water' sticks with the blues with a track clearly inspired by Free.

we end with the longest track 'Because Of You', coming in at just under 8 minutes.This reminds me of 'My Tortured Soul' by Probot, just love the bass in this so much.

One of the best albums of this genre i have heard in a very long time.

Rating 10/10

For fans of : Cathedral, Electric Wizard, Black Sabbath, Trouble.
