The Mad Professor I recently made a trip to New Zealand, and visited the small town of Haast. Nobody had heard of the band but were quite flattered when I told them that there is an awesome doom band, named after the massive Eagles that used to carry off prey the size of men, making killer riffs and beats inspired by their history. Not much there except majestic mountains and the worlds most expensive fucking petrol!

dkelvin I believed sludge doom had nothing new to invent anymore and I was wrong. This band shows that there's a lot still to create in this genre. Take a trip with them. It's a fantastic and rich travel you'll make, although quite dark and thrilling. Did a review (in French) here. Favorite track: Pyaaz Bhonghi.

Andrew Kottwitz Clear, high vocals (with some growling) and deliciously grungy guitar riffs.

Undulating between monastic contemplation, soaring vocals, titanic riffing, esoteric solos and even exquisitely tasteful doomloungejazz, this is less ‘a journey’ and more a perfectly executed mission of sound.

Of course this is not easy first-time listening, none of the best albums are. However, what we have in our hands here is an album that should go on to be a cult-classic of the underground doom/stoner scene.
