Private Show: ....................................................... About: "Just like bluesman pioneer Robert Johnson, Dopethrone must’ve made a deal with the Devil to attain the supremely evil sound of its uninventively titled third album. The Montreal trio wallows in smoke, demons, death, the occult and enough psychotropic drugs to send both Hunter S. Thomspson and William Burroughs on one hell of a trip on these five songs, entrenching 37 heavy minutes with exploitation film samples, malevolent growls and gritty, slow-burning blues-infused metal grooves. There ain’t no such thing as too much headbanging with fast, addictive joints such as ‘’The Devil’s Dandruff’’ and the mighty ‘’Reverb Deep’’. Bow down before Dopethrone’s altar and be forever doomed. 4/5" -RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE (Kristof G.)

“Taking their name from the 1939 novel by Nathanael West,which deals with the alienation and desperation of a broad group of odd individuals who exist at the fringes of the Hollywood movie industry.While they describe their music as "Pink Floyd meets Crowbar fighting in quicksand". Weighing in at 15 minutes this is one very epic debut, stating with some very clever use of effects pedals it moves into superb doom territory, incredibley heavy with devistatingly heavy drums and very strong vocals. Nice melodic guitar breakdowns puncutuate the wall of sound to create unique structure. 8 minutes in the song gives way to some very quite guitarwork which in turn leads to a very different kind of sound that blends melody with a dark ambience and some slide guitar reminiscent of classic Pink Floyd. Totally stunning track, no faults, in fact needs to be longer!!!! STU Rating: 10/10 For Fans Of: Cathedral, Blood Island Raiders, Reverend Bizzare, Triptykon, Sunn o)))”
