Take the most drug-induced psychedelia from Ministry, throw in some UFOMAMMUT doom and the hypnotic sludge of Sons of Otis and you have one fucking heavy tripping album. Weird Things, the latest from Pressor is one mind-trip of an album. Hailing from Russia, Pressor take elements of spacey doom, heavy  industrial and mosh it up into a heavy atmospheric sludge overdose.

The standout track may be “Weird Things”. It has this amped-up Holy Mountain Sleep vibe, and the vocals resemble Al Cisnceros with extremely heavy echoes. The album keeps spiraling into oblivion with “Tripping Deep” and “Hexadecimal Unified Insanity” as these songs pummel your ear drums with maddening doom. Weird Things contains only four extremely textured songs, yet it’s four songs of industrial heaviness that do not let up. After one rotation, you’ll need to sit in silence for a bit or listen to something completely opposite like the soft 70s of Seals and Croft to clear your mind.
