I was watching 'Such Hawks, Such Hounds' this morning, the unmissable American Hardrock underground documentary -call it Stoner rock if you please, that features, among tons of others, the guy I wanna see live one day or another : Robert Scott "Wino" Weinrich.
And this naturally leads to this new post.
Wino teamed up with Jean-Paul Gaster (CLUTCH) and Jon Blank (REZIN) to give birth to his long-awaited solo effort, the combination of riffs and melodies he had in stock for years, but never could lay on tape.
The result is a strong, varied and vibrant album. Fans will immediately praise the undisputed Doom Master and worship. But how could things be different?
As always, Southern Lord Records did a hell of a great job with this must-have release : heavy weight cardboard gatefold sleeve with special pocket for the 4-songs bonus 10". There's a 'forest green' mailorder edition limited to 500 copies.
The bonus 10" is comprised of :
Chest Fever [The BAND cover]
Der Gift (the Poison)
The Comet and the Moon
On the (Sacrificial) Lam
