Epic drone/doom/sludge/drug hazed/creepy album from Salt Lake City. Eagle Twin is the brainchild of guitarist/vocalist Gentry Densley, formerly of Iceburg, and drummer Tyler Smith. An Unkindness of Crows is the bands debut, a Southern Lord release.
With a sound somewhere between Khanate, sunn O))) and, as their bio points out, the gravel-mouthed vocals of Howlin’ Wolf and Tom Waits. The riffs are as thick and heavy as riffs thick, and as slow as cold molasses; at times they’re so slow that they seem to come to a full stop, just hovering there ominously in all their shimmering, throbbing, pulsating glory. Brilliantly record by Randall Dunn in Seattle, the sound is crystal clear and indescribably heavy.
Fans of Earth, Pelican, sunn O))),
Khanate, Sabbath, et al will devour this, and after a spate of 2009 shows with Pelican, Earth, sunn O))), and The Accused, they’re no doubt going to be a key players in the world of doom metal. Magnificent.
