Sounds Like:
Acid King, Windhand
Acid doom from Singapore! Very cultish indeed, to the point where the band has essentially developed their own cult-laden language. The band's debut features some very original doom endeavors and melodies that hold their own. The album flows well with subtle whisper filled and distorted vocals set along some very dark landscapes. The doom undercurrent meanders a bit but the foursome ultimately deliver a solid debut performance as we found the album improves with each rotation.

Standout Track(s)
"Bewitchingly.... Yours!" Provides the most contrast and some more vibrant fretwork. Good build-up and clearly the standout track for us.
