Sonny92 Simple, but effective, sludgy doom with harsh vocals. Ultra-slow, very heavy and a little disturbing. Favorite track: Buried With Fingers Crossed.

Edward Haddon I have driven this band and seen them twice before they split up fairly recently. Doom heavy and really cool people. 3 long tracks of slow inevitable riffs, drums and Dani's screams top off a sweet little album. I listen to it a lot and it hits all the right spots. Highly recommended! Favorite track: Buried With Fingers Crossed.
