We Will Lead You To Glorious Times
6/9/2005 - Review by: Kazimierez
Ramesses - "We Will Lead You to Glorious Times" - 2004 - This Dark Reign Recordings
The atmosphere of this recording is out of this world. Bagshaw is not only a master of the riff, but also a master of creating enthralling atmospheres (which is also apparent on such Electric Wizard classics as "Dopethrone", etc.) with his riffs. He effortlessly switches between moody clean lines and heavy fucking sludge/doom riffs and even on occasion employs some black metal style chord progressions which are used as subtle atmosphere enhancements, further elevating the grim aura that this monolithic work projects. The production, although raw, suits the music perfectly. It's dirty as hell and it's as thick as an oil slick. Everything sounds great. All of the instruments are totally audible and the vocals are mixed perfectly right in the middle of it all. "We Will Lead You to Glorious Times" is very highly recommended for fans of bands like Electric Wizard, Buried at Sea, Grief, dISEMBOWELMENT, etc. Fuck, if you like anything the sludge/doom scene has to offer, check this out ASAP. You WILL not be disappointed.
