An ominous goat on top of a mountain in the winter is enough to lure us in. We had high hopes for Norway’s doomsters Praise the Sun as their latest EP falls a bit flat. To be fair, these three heavy songs could be amazing and trippy as all hell, but the production just brings us down. The first track will wear on you within the first minute, the drumming sounds so compressed like a poorly converted mp3 and the cymbal work is very irritating. The vocals are dark and extremely muffled, a great use of vocals, but you guessed it, they are poorly produced. We’re not going to waste your time on this one, it’s basically three cuts that could be incredible if it wasn’t for the bad quality. We would love to hear this album remastered, it would make a world of difference and probably bring the rating up quite a few levels.

Adult Beverage Pairing
Not wasting a crafty brew on this one, lets go with a Amstel Light, a good and solid beer, but not exciting.

Final Thoughts
Praise the Sun could have a great EP on their hands, the songwriting is there, but they missed the boat with the production. We’ll keep tabs on the band for future releases, perhaps they’ll hit us with a album in the near future.
