Some weeks ago I received a message via my BLOG contact from Hard Life Promotion from the Netherlands with a request for two reviews. I am starting with the album "The Taint" from the band High Inquisitor Woe. I expected some more extreme or Death Metal influenced music but this is just pure and oldschool as fuck Doom/Sludge Metal. A really nice alternation to the stuff I normally review.
The 8 tracks on the album span from the shortest song "Stallions Doom" until the over 12 minute long end Opus "The Taint" which is also the title tack of the album. So you have about an hour to listen to with this record. I really had fun hearing the tunes. Totally chilled out and cooling you down.
As far as I read it on HIW's page, the band was founded back in 2014 and released two EPs before. The goal was for the two founding members Glenn and Mathijs to create traditional Doom Metal with a lot of different influences and aspects of sound while venting off about their life experiences and also sing about the stuff they liked in their youth. Stuff like Sourcerers, Conquerors and other stuff from Movies/Comics which influenced them.
