I first heard about this potential "Doom supergroup" in the beginning of 2009 and have been waiting for their debut since then.
Now this is reality, and the vinyl version, mastered at 45rpm, makes it even more incredibly fantastic.
Absolutely one of the most accomplished records of 2009, and one to become a timeless classic imho.
Those massive, monolithic riffs Wino manages to pull off of his instrument are just so fucking hypnotic and grand there's no word to describe the heaviness of it all.
Meditative, spiritual and crushingly powerful at times.
I won't waste time on enumerating superlatives.
And considering the line-up of SHRINEBUILDER, I would lack superlatives anyway.
Just note this heavy baby is the european version and has a beautiful etching on side 3 (as the US version does) and is A/B blue/black and C/D orange/black (sorta marbled/splattered-ish... beautiful!).
I give you Solar Benediction and Blind For All To See.
