Yes!!! At last. A new Vitus album and more stinking heaviness to make my ears bleed for the next 20 years. This album is so thick and heavy with despair it makes other doom bands sound like Westlife. Hard to take all in on the first listen but like many great albums this is a grower. Fantastic stuff from Dave, Wino, Mark and Vasquez!!!

Great album indeed! Typical old school Saint Vitus with a good production-not over-produced. Close to anything they've released between Born too late and V.
For those who aren't familiar with Saint Vitus at all, keep in mind these guys were probably the firsts-with Witchfinder General-to play some Heavy/doom/Sabbath heavy metal in the early 80's. Those guys might have been considered Sabbath clones (clowns?) back then, where today everybody and their uncle seems to pump ideas from the Sabbath well and is considered a genius when updating Black sabbath-like riffs in all of the new sub-genres (doom, sludge, stoner,...).
Great stuff indeed, although 7 tracks is a bit short (about 30 minutes+ 3 minutes of feedback), therefor only 4 stars.
