Voodooshock - s/t
The heroes of VOODOOSHOCK are surely the likes of BLACK SABBATH, PENTAGRAM or SAINT VITUS, or not? The music on this record sounds like a homage to those bands and also the vocals can be described as a bastard of Ozzy and Wino. Slow lava-Doom together with rocking notes, which already made BLACK SABBATH famous and so we get a homogeneous album, which should please all Doom-disciples.

Nothing to complain about the quality, whereby you should be a fan of the very sloooooow arts. Maybe, it's also interesting for some Stoner fans, although there is missing the modern attitude. Do you have ever listened to a slow motion version of the Oldie classic "Nights In White Satin"? You get it in the VOODOOSHOCK version - you have to hear that - excellent!

But I can also imagine to smoke some shit, while listen to songs like "Rainbow Sky" (ingenious song!) or the overlength "We Cry". But I won't to instigate someone to do that, although I'm probably very harmless compared with every 15 years old guys... Anyway, it's fun to listen to the slow-motion songs of VOODOOSHOCK. Okay, there are also some stressing parts, especially for people, whose DOOM horizon ends with CANDLEMASS. It's not a record for them - real DOOMMANIACS should get this! (Online February 7, 2003)
