Dö EP 2014
What a piece of doom-sludge-stoned metal I have here! Definitely this is one of those underground bands that deserve a good place into the road. Coming from Finland, the band is formed by a General Development Officer of Riffs, Chief Executive Officer of Rhythm and Tempo, Executive Vice President of Low-end and Oral Messaging, and the three of them did an excellent work in this EP, by creating obscured atmospheres rooted in black sabbathic riffs, slow tempos and a very particular perspective of psychedelic/stoner rock, you know, full of emotive and primitive guitar riffs through aggressive and explosive rhythms.
It’s a caustic production covered in a mask of stoner music, but with many influences coming from different sources. If you ask me, all this music is very chaotic, cathartic and easily can be confused by lovers of psychedelic stuff and direct-to-the-bone guitar riffs. Last track “Everlast” is the most representative of the style they want to reach, as all guitar riffs are dimensioned into inner thoughts and visceral lines. It’s a 13 mins track, full of emotions (just listen to the pink floydian middle section) Maybe I would prefer a clean voice here and there, but guttural vocals fit ok and give distinct personality to the result. I’ll keep an eye on these crazy people. – Victor Varas
