I've always liked Moss....from the crusty sounding demos through to the dirgey, brilliantly monotone albums...but this is a step to the left, and I like it even more! Whereas previous releases would be 2-3 tracks longer (averaging around 20mins a track), and sound largely like an Earthquake in an insane asylum, this new one contains what could be described as actual songs. The general vibe is one more of Electric Wizard (albeit dirtier), or Pall Bearer (albeit nastier). The guitar is still crushing but is now playing actual riffs rather than huge walls of distorted noise, and the vocals are now a clean(ish) croon rather than the wonderfully demented shrieks of earlier albums. I still love those old Moss recordings, but they could sometimes be difficult to listen to, requiring a certain mood, this release can be listened to without those boundaries. Here's to hoping they continue to just get better and better :)
Excellant doom, very heavy stuff indeed. Im so glad that on this album there is no black metal shrieking anymore, that has been replaced by Ollys clean vocals which are much better, this album is amazing
Same old boring monotonous nonsense from the ugliest band in the world. Only difference here is the god awful vocals. Rise Above records ditched these guys as they literally sold NO records. Here's why.
