Holy shit. Someone got Sleep back together and killed off the members of Zoroaster! Well not really, but that’s what most this album sounds like. Since Dog Magic, the Southern boys in Zoroaster have been perfecting the formula for the perfect doom record. This formula consists of melodic and soothing tracks immediately followed by huge, gargantuan and heavy masterpieces like “Spirit Molecule” and “White Dwarf”. Listen carefully in “White Dwarf” for Brent Hinds of Mastodon’s handy-work. Also be sure to catch the hidden track on “Lamen Of The Master Therion” around 6:20.
Overall Zoroaster has created a great album that will most likely mark a highpoint in the band’s career. It’s heads above their self-titled release and Dog Magic and it’ll be interesting to see how their sound evolves in the future.
