Odetosun have, amazingly, one-upped ‘God’s forgotten orbit’ and if you consider yourself a progressive metal fan then you should equally consider this to be an essential addition to your collection.
If you dig heavy metal with a stoner vibe, than Omar’s debut album is certainly for you.
If you have yet to discover either Fen or Slug Comparison, this is the perfect introduction and it is a wonderful addition to the collection of any music fan. Simply wonderful.
For those who have a passion for music in its extremist form, the crushing darkness of ‘from all purity’ is an essential purchase – bleak, tormented and presented with a production that allows the music to seep, like slowly coagulating blood, from the speakers, this is surely the pinnacle of Indian’s achievements and it stands tall with the likes of ‘things viral’ and ‘filth’ – an uneasy and quite remarkable success.
Overall, ‘Astronautica’ is an absolute gem of a record, a journey not unlike Dave’s final voyage into the unknown in 2001 and a brilliantly exhilarating body of work and thus comes with the very highest recommendation.
Like a great book or piece of artwork, ‘Tibetan monk’ demands you give as much of yourself as it returns and in doing so it makes you feel a part of the wondrous noise the band are making.
'Action figures’ is a beautifully produced and well-written EP and while its laid back vibe may not appeal to everyone, for those who miss bands such as Soul Asylum, City and the sea have much to offer.
Always fascinating and never repetitive, Necro Deathmort have never been more essential than they here, on EP1.
