SIXES ~ Methistopheles (2018)



Sixes ~ Methistopheles

Imagine waking suddenly. Blinking, your eyes slowly become used to the blinding sterile light where four silhouettes surround you. For some reason you're transfixed, unable to move. The grip of panic has never felt so cold in your veins as your mind scrambles to make sense of what is happening. One of the four looms over you, face contorted in a rictus grin, reaching for something beyond your vision.You feel the sharp serrated blade caress the skin at the top of your skull, and it dawns on you that this is all horribly wrong and isn't going to end well. As the piercing shriek of the Stryker Saw begins its hideous work, your jaw stretches agape, every sinew straining under the flush of adrenaline.............!

And so, we come to Methistopheles, the upcoming release from Californians, Sixes. Its the aural equivalent of being the involuntary star attraction at an autopsy. Six songs of hideous doom sludge that make you shudder at the thought that you've been licked all over by a leper. The first track 'Acid God' starts innocuously enough until the vibrating saw feedback, digs into your skull and the tortured vocals make you beg for mercy, followed by riffs that have never seen daylight.

This is as heavy as it gets without becoming unbearably suffocating, it even allows for the occasional rampage of death,blackened, of course. The only respite from the horror that is Methistopheles, is the first half of the last track 'Voidkiller' but even then the shadow of depression eventually closes the album off.

There could be a hundred thousand doom sludge releases this year, but I can guarantee that nothing will match the hue of sickness that pervades this release.

DECAY OF REALITY - Reality Of Decay (2014)



Decay Of Reality ~ Russia

Spawned from traditional Russian Funeral doom luminaries such as Who Dies In Siberian Slush, and Abstract Spirit, Decay Of Reality are the puppeteers pulling your strings and making you twitch and bang your head to a full length choked with riffs that wouldn't sound out of place on Celtic Frost's 'Morbid Visions'

Although the funereal DNA of the aforementioned bands clogs the veins of Decay Of Reality, there is a chasm between the sound, where funeral doom morphs into a benediction of doom/death, pure death and death/thrash.

What attracted me most to this album, was the fact that although primarily a death metal album, there is a lot of crunch to the sound, no Cannibal Corpse cloning, nor any nod towards 'The Swedish Guitar Sound.' Instead, the riffs chop you to pieces, hacking slowly rather than pulverize.

The tracks on Reality Of Decay are a hybrid of varying tempo's, mainly mid paced, but can dip into either doom or thrash. This makes for an extremely interesting listen as repetitive this is not.

SOUL THIEF ~ Fools And Angels (2018)



Soul Thief ~ Fools And Angels

Like a fine malt whiskey, Fools and Angels is a blend of searing, barbed, guitar solo's mingling with a bed of smooth, drowsy, rhythmic pulses. Enhanced by the spaced out vocal delivery, Soul Thief has created a mesmerizing, addictive journey into sub consciousness.

The crystalline licks of Marcus Gage splinter and crackle like shards of glass from a shattered mirror, splinters embedding into the funk ridden bass of Robert Matthews whilst the entire utopian concoction is stalked throughout by the time keeping of the drumming of Stuart Barton all of which make up the ingredients of a heady potion of ethereal jams.

If your life is full of stress and the wolves are at the door of your mind at night, let Fools And Angels caress your speakers and watch those wolves dissipate in a flash of ether.

Fools and Angels is released 2nd February 2018
