The infamous Captain Graves is back with another review--but this time, he seems to have lessened his blows. Could...could this mean that the Captain be showing a softer side? This must be some kind of ploy. - Ed.
There's been some new additions to the Village since my last visit. I wonder if they're warned of my sadistic ways, or do they just allow them to figure it out on their own? The stoned fools aren't ready for the annihilation that will ensue, warning or not.
Here we have Concilium, an Epic Doom outfit from Boston, MA. We've had the pleasure of playing a couple shows together. They became a sort of sister, and brothers in arms. Helping Advent Varic decimate Salem, and Allston. I had not heard of them before being booked together. As I normally do when booked with bands I don't know, I waited for that live performance to conjure up my opinion. I'd hung out with their singer a few times prior, and had no idea she was the lead vocalist in a band, or maybe she told me when I was drunk. I used to hit the bottle pretty hard. You fucking Earthlings really stress me out... but I digress.
No Sanctuary is their first EP, besides a demo I found from 2015. The atmospheric quality of the music really suits my needs, the guitar playing is immaculate, and the vocals remind me of soaring through space, high off my ass on a special fungi I saved from Tumulus. I have a culture to keep them preserved, and they are growing up on Saturn 9. Let me know if any of you should dare that horrific trip, take my hand, and walk through the fire.
From what I've heard, they started as a Candlemass worship band. I think they've moved on from that, and found a nice little spot for themselves. You can find them on bandcamp, or contact them directly about the cool cassette tape they have, if it's not sold out already.
Providing thoughtful reviews of music that is heavy, gloomy, and loud enough to wake us from slumber. Written by a groggy-eyed, highfalutin peasantry.
