It’s not often I’m compelled to listen to an unsolicited, unknown band nowadays, but when said outfit covers Candlemass—and a cut from Epicus Doomicus…
Hellbound Metal: “Call this power-doom if thou wilt, but they’re definitely more power, less doom this time around.”
Hellbound Metal: “Another highly-anticipated album for yours truly, The White Goddessis the long-awaited follow-up to the German power-doom band’s 2010 debut, The Golden Bough. Mind you, crafting a record of such epic length takes time; although, at 58 minutes, it’s actually some seven shorter than its predecessor!”
if this band’s MO is to copy Candlemass and Argus as closely as they can, they’ve hit the mark. I gotta dock ‘em a couple points for originality, but full marks for execution are well-deserved.
Misery Wizard is the first full-length release from this Rhode Island trio, though it’s clear from the first note that they’ve taken a few classes at the University of Doom Metal.
Boldly strides Argus, lookout!
