This six track EP of stoner metal is a breath of fresh air in the piles of death metal, grind and generic releases that I get thrown my way. The band plays heavy, but not so overpowering that melody gets left behind.

This EP is full of riffs that grab you, thick and heavy bass, solos that ring out, devastating drums and gruff vocals all mixed in with melody. The band is heavy, but not in a way that will get lumped in with bands so heavy that it just becomes a morass of noise that carries no depth or any kind of tunefulness that this EP has in spades. The songs that stood out for me were “Protostar”, “Red Horned Crown”, “Flesh Of The Gods”, and “Moon Crazy”.

This loud and heavy EP has the ability to make you bang your head, but still have enough depth that when you play it for nearly every other metal fan, they will come out loving it too. This Ep does it job, it gets their music out to the punters, but because there are only six songs, it whets your appetite for more from them.
