Do you like Uncles? Do you like Acid? Do you like deadbeats? Do you like Minds? Do you like Control?
If so then this is for you!
If the idea of Black Sabbath's Master of Reality being reimagined though Junior's Eyes floats your Doom laden boat then this is for you. It's not all like that though "Death Valley Blues" is Master of Reality seen through Junior's Eyes as done by the Beatles.
Loses a star for Uncle's vocals (Ozzy as done by Neil Young) not being as high in the mix as on Blood Lust, but there is still minor mellotronic input.
Overall that's a BUY them. My mind is controlling yours: BUY! BUY! BUY!
Fantastic album full of dirty grooves and riffs galore. Just as good as previous album Blood Lust. All sorts of differing influences can be heard but mostly Black Sabbath comes to mind. Not a big fan of the fade out but because of the 70's vibe it fits perfectly reminding me of listening to my first rock and metal albums 30 odd years ago. 5 stars easily!
Awesome! A huge step from their Blood lust record, the mix is more refined and the songs are better produced as a whole. If listening to the record in full I sometimes find the tracks a little too similar sounding however on their own they are great. The vocals are also a bit low in the mix but still good to listen too. Great artwork, great music, 5 stars for me!
