Old Iron deliver a powerful sophomore album of sludgy madness
Seattle's own, Old Iron, deliver a mammoth of a sophomore album in the form of 'Lupus Metallorum'. The production is a lot cleaner and crisper than on most sludge metal albums, making these songs sound beyond heavy. Tracks like 'Bloody Angles' and 'Nightmare Tooth' sounds as if Crowbar and Isis wrote and recorded them in a joint effort. 'Bogwitch' is my favorite track on the album as it has both doom and extreme metal influences. The final track, 'Banisteriopsis Caapi' starts soft and slowly builds into an ultra-heavy sludgefest of a song. You don't have to be a fan of sludge or doom to like this album. This one is a MUST LISTEN!
