PadraigC Wow, I just had to buy this album. All three tracks are amazing. The sound is so full and encompassing, it just envelopes you. I have it playing in the studio when I'm making art - it's the perfect album for that, energizing and inspiring.
Favorite track: Cocoon Of Soul.

citysavage This album acts on me like a drug, a drug I've been looking for my whole life but could never find, one that casts me into a liminal state between dreams and wakefulness, where I'm alert and equally receptive to memories, images, and the outside world. Powerful stuff, heavy and crushing. Favorite track: Cocoon Of Soul.

God Nailer Start to finish is a full on skull fucking with a muddy spaded shovel that you used to dig your own grave with. Can't get enough of this crews musical tones. Turn it up to 11 for this one and try to blow your speakers. Cause i'm telling you it'll be worth it! 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.
