CRYPTRIP - The Great Magmatic Leviathan

Artwork by Riccardo " Gore" Longhitano.
Found this one late last night and I was pretty excited when I heard it. I only got to hear the first song but the riff got stuck in my head almost immediately. Apparently I wasn't the only one 'cause before I shuffled off the bed I saw it was already making the rounds online. Just getting to listen to it now and the hype is warranted, to say the least. I'm hearing touches of psychedelia and some elements of black metal speckled here and there over an overwhelmingly doom-y, sludgy framework, not entirely unlike a Lord of the Grave perhaps. This thing is a PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT so there's no going wrong. This is an excellent album, well worth a spin.

Cryptrip is not to be confused with this band.
