Well, here it is. The collaboration between Wino, Al Cisneros, Scott Kelly & Dale Crover. Sound good? You bet ya.

To be perfectly honest, i'm not the biggest fan of any one of these artists. Yes I like Neurosis, Sleep, Om & the Melvins not to mention the numerous projects Wino has been involved in, notably St Vitus & The Obsessed. But none of these are in my favourite band category. Having said that, they are for many people. Taking Neurosis as an example, they have created a sound & style all their own which is often imitated & referenced but never really bettered.

As a jump off point then, Scott Kelly's presence on this release is huge, how can it not be? He takes vocals on all the tracks & there are plenty of the drawn out ominous riffs that his main band are so well known for. But he doesn't dominate the proceedings, oh no. There is just as much influence from the others to make this a truly perfect collaboration. In fact, alot of this stuff take's Om's meditative, spiritual approach. It's heavy & beautiful in equal measures but there is also plenty of build up & introspection to much of it. Take second track Pyramid Of The Moon, which starts off with a Neurosis riff with Wino providing some clever effects untill half way through where is breaks down into a chant & very typical vocals from Cisneros. Likewise, The Architect is a Wino track with a thunderous vocal section from Kelly, quality Wino lead & superb bassline from Cisneros. In fact, to my mind Cisneros probably stands out just about the most, with his brillant basslines always clear in the mix no matter how fierce it gets.

Lastly Dale Crover must also get a mention for keeping the whole thing together with such expert skill.

Shrinebuilder was not a band I was very aware of but had heard of.Then I saw the cd in a shop.From the photo on the slipcase I could see members of Melvins,Om/Sleep,Neurosis,St Vitus/Obsessed,and in one band,this has to be good,I have to buy this.It is good.Heavy,complex,delicate,elements of all the parent bands coming together to make something new.
Build your shrine and let the universe fill your soul with cosmic wisdom.

Shrinebuilder are an exciting super group formed from great and influential artists in the Doom, Sludge and Stoner genres, who play an elaborate mixture of the three styles resulting in an incredibly strong and well formed rock and metal listening experience.

The line up features Scott Kelly on guitar and vocals (Neurosis and frequent and vocal guest to Mastodon) Al Cisneros on bass and vocals (Sleep/Om) Dale Crover on the drums (The Melvins) and finally the legendary and hardworking Scott `Wino' Weinrich on guitar and vocals (Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, The Hidden Hand and vocal guest to Clutch, Probot and more)

With a line up like that, a whole sub-community of rock and metal fans should be clamoring all over this band. The best thing of all however is that, unlike most super-groups Shrinebuilder actually gel really well as a band and turn in a collaborative feeling record that actually sounds both as good as the sum of its parts and as if it was written together in a room by all the members, rather than just hastily compiled from their own individual songs.

Even with this collaborative feel and distinct Shrinebuilder sound however, each individual member still manage to put their own stylistic stamp on each and every song.

The tracks on their self titled debut studio album from 2009 are all fairly long and explore a mixture of moods, with rumbling bass, fuzzy effects laden lead guitar and a mixture of vocal styles that range from a classic rock feel to loud sludge style barking, often transitioning seamlessly.

The album is absolutely consistent throughout and all five tracks are exemplary, and would each be a stand out track on anyone else's album.
