A heavy cloud of sulphur and weed, a granite slab of heavy as hell, “deal with the devil” Stoner/Doom metal like you haven’t heard in a long, long while (did someone say Electric Wizard?).
Dopelord takes us by the hand into a psychedelic trip down a spiral of crossroad pacts and pentagrams drafted in sacrificial blood, while surrounded by a penetrating dope fog. What’s different in this record is the aggressive vibe that permeates it, as if a primeval anger were channeled amidst the fuzz. Try Hail Satan‘s chorus for size.
A masterful, massive riff laden example of exquisitely accomplished Doom.
