Zachary Gates Heavy and hypnotic. This is the kind of album you listen to, fuzzed out and staring at the ceiling or the stars.

Steve Rodger Not so much drone just makes you wait till the riff kicks in..... I love this dark sludge riff fest !! Favorite track: Blessed shall be he who takes your little ones and dashes them against the rock.

Veedwood Some nice variety in the sounds available on this one. Moody atmospheric, ambient passages to all out wall of sound riffage; sludge to doom, with some stoner along the way, even some blackened goodness if you're into that - it's all in here.

Easily the best heavy album out of the Baltics in the last decade. Favorite track: Dude, this beer tastes like swamp water (bonus track).

chris renehan I first listened to this a little worried about the bands name and image, sod that though the music is amazing, fresh,different and awesome. It could be the best music I have heard in a very long time.
Keep up the good work and please come to London!

The three of us came together in the mid-autumn of 2014. Instead of going the traditional way (releasing a demo, playing live shows etc.), we agreed upon doing something a bit different. We decided to create a complete DIY concept album rather than just a compendium of demo songs.

It took us nearly a year to make this release happen. All the things that might have gone wrong, went wrong (except maybe being possessed by a vengeful spirit of a demon platypus or being bitten by a werehamster... that did not happen either), but no matter the struggle the release is finally out.
