One Year Of Insanity!

Time flies when you're having fun! I'm doing this thing exact a year this very day!
When I started this blog I was listening this album a lot. So it's time to post it now. Let The Churches Burn by the Swedish Stoner Doom band Suma is the album of the year of 2006, no argue about that! The threatning starts with the first track Let The Churches Burn. There's so many tension on this album. It's like a haunted house at a lunapark. Scary as hell. The music is just awesome. Slow down-tuned riffs that are like a steam roller crushing everything on it's way. Very great guitars, pounding drums, a roaring bass and even sometimes a singing saw (with effects). And then the vocals. They are really frightening.
Other cool tracks are: Blood Pony, Beef and No, You're The Monkey. So let me say to you: Enjoy!

"After being transfixed by the amazing Toner Low album, I found myself with an appetite for more devilish doom drone. No sooner had I reviewed that and Let the Churches Burn arrived. By the end of the opening title track, my need for a fix had been satiated. Massive riffs collide with a bludgeoning percussion, the effect laden vocals scream out at you as the Mogadon-ic slow pace and perfect production (courtesy of the one and only Billy Anderson) create a menacing, grime-laden doom classic. Similar moments can be found across the album's length, all interspersed with Sunn0))) style drone passages. The resulting dirge is hypnotic yet through headphones its denseness can feel claustrophobic."

"The samples used suppliment the anti-religious mood eminating from the lyrics as well as providing a contrast to the Jus Oborn-style vocals. Electric Wizard seem to have a definite influence on the music as well, their darkest moments feasted upon by Suma for inspiration, and welded to the aforementioned drone sensibilities of restraint, noise and occasional minimalism. This is an incredibly heavy and dark album. Let the Churches Burn is an immense record that fans of the sonic extremeties of doom should be aware of.
