Like this week's brilliant Sun Araw release, On Patrol, Robedoor's Burners is vying for sleeve art greatness, truly looking like something that's arrived from another age and most probably another dimension. Recorded and mixed last year at the same studio that birthed the band's formidable Raiders long-player, this new album joins some of the dots between the group's menacing drone past and their recent turn towards more confirmedly song-based material. Pick of the tracks has to be the B-side spanning doom-mongering drone cacophony 'Burning Man', which feels like a fairly definitive account of what this band can deliver at their most fearsome: expect some intensely deep, dark sludge-rock meditations and reverberant guitar/vocal textures that howl defiantly into the abyss. Etc.
