Sonny92 Towering monolithic slabs of titanic sonic devastation, set to lay waste to all that dare turn their ears towards them. OK, maybe that's overstating it a little, but this is serious sludge / doom that's really not for the faint-hearted (two of the three tracks are over 20 minutes long). Brilliant cover too from Mariusz Lewandowski who did the artwork for Bell Witch's Mirror Reaper. Favorite track: Cocoon Of Soul.

about

Monolithic sludge/doom band EREMIT give us one of the heaviest and most ambitious album the style has seen in recent times. Featuring stunning album artwork by Mariusz Lewandowski (BELL WITCH), the band trudge through turbulent, winding structures without letting them affect the overall momentum. There are three epic songs, with the longest being over 33 minutes, where they flesh out every nuance and showcase rare depth while retaining unparalleled brutality. Being the band's debut, the emotions are all too raw and palpable, but perhaps that's what's needed to get the point across. This is undiluted, straight-from-the-heart, maxed out sludge/doom with moments of poignancy ensconced in the bludgeoning heaviness.
