Review: 'ASEETHE'
'Hopes Of Failure'   

-  Label: 'Thrill Jockey'
-  Genre: 'Heavy Metal' -  Release Date: '24th February 2017'

Our Rating:
Doom rock is the logical extension of classic heavy metal with mammoth riffs slowed and extended to create a drone ambience and growling indecipherable vocals as if rendered from the pits of hell.

In other words, this is the antithesis of easy listening and since this trio from Ohio previously made a 13 minute deconstruction of Black Sabbath's Rat Salad you sort of know what to expect.

Their grinding sludge of sound is applied to four elongated 'songs'- Sever The Head,Towers Of Dust,Barren Soil and Into The Sun which are said to be "driven by an inward focus, [staring] down the caverns of depression".

The systematic repetition might conceivably be used as a soundtrack to meditation but the visualizations the music stirs up would not give much peace of mind.

It is more likely to cause you to agree with Private Frazer's constant warning in Dad's Army - "We're all doomed!"
