The heavy stoner-psych powerhouse of Robot God has just returned with their “Valleys of Primordia”. Merely a year and a half after their excellent debut “Silver Buddha Dreaming”, the Australians deliver a masterclass of heaviness, with a tone that will make your speakers breathe new life. Two songs, with a length of ten minutes each, completing one another on this short but most enjoyable ride through the “Valleys of Primordia”.
You should really be warned from the start that the new album by Restless Spirit “Blood of the Old Gods” is a beast. The trio from New York has created an album that easily looks eye to eye with bands like Mastodon, High on Fire and Psychonaut. There are brilliant vocal melodies throughout, with intelligent riffs and grooves that demonstrate the band’s musicianship.
Sweden’s Altareth released their debut album earlier this month, and what a debut album it is! The self-titled song draws you into a vortex of heaviness, bringing to mind the thunderous sound of Acid Mammoth. There are some glorious moments in songs like “Satan Hole and “Eternal Sleep”, where the band unapologetically wears its Sabbathesque roots on its sleeve. It is, however, in tunes like “Moon” and “High Priest” where the band truly starts to own the genre and find its own unique voice. Excellent work by the rhythm section, with a steady and menacing confidence, driving the tunes as it keeps pummeling all the way from the first note to the very last.
