When: ‘Obsidian Spectre’ – 11/06/2013
Where: Telephone Explosion Records
There’s really not much available out there to say about Halifax band CROSSS. All I know is that they recently appeared on a split with I Smell Blood for indie label PERDU and their contribution – the 9 minute Obsidian Song – was certainly interesting to say the least. These guys have released Lucky Loki in anticipation for the release of their debut album ‘Obsidian Spectre’, which will be out June 11th via Telephone Explosion Records.
Lucky Loki is a heavy track baring similarities to sludge and doom metal with a hint of stoner rock akin to the likes of Kyuss and Om, but like those bands they bring forth a pretty chilled rhythm to their music which makes even these heavy guitar riffs pretty accessible. The repeated verses add to the claustrophobic air formed from the instrumentation and well, everything is just coming along nicely.
CROSSS have got themselves a solid single with Lucky Loki and it certainly promises what should be a record full of heavy riffs and a pretty trippy experience too. Also how freaking badass is ‘Obsidian Spectre’ for a title? Awesome.
