"Very impressive rebirth of stoner rock in recent times. A style of music that was born in the end yes with Kyuss and the like but heavily sinks its roots much further back, in two fundamental bands and historical as Black Sabbath and Blue Cheer. The taste for the occult and the esoteric of many groups who followed those paths are served in my opinion more to confuse the listener and imagine who knows what mysteries than anything else, the music in any case, links them to the past and this is what that interests us. The Alunah come from Birmingham, not coincidentally also the starting point of Black Sabbath, and they retrace the footsteps, or at least the intention is. Unlike their glorious masters do not have a frontman Ozzy Osbourne as crazy but at least the blonde singer and guitarist Soph Day has un'ugola enough to support and maneuver the heavy arsenal put on by his companions in adventure, Dave Day, guitar, Gaz Imber on bass and Jake Mason on drums. After you have made a considerable reputation as a live act torrential have finally decided to send in the studio all the grit discharged on stage.
Two records in the 2012, at a distance of a few months, the debut already arsonist of "Call of the Avernus" , however conceived two years earlier and the latter " White Hoarhound " consecrate them among the brightest lights of doom-scene stoner. Right from the initial torque Demeter's grief and White Hoarhound, we are immersed in the river of lava called Alunah, beautiful voice Soph, the irresistible title track, the guitars sound dark and heavy, Kyuss meanwhile peep around the corner.Compared to the great sons of the desert boys Birmingham have their greater expansion of songs and more space while remaining dedicated to flames guitar solos kept to a minimum as it is typical of the genre. Proof of this the three long tracks, Belial's fjord , The Chester midsummer watch parade and Oak Ritual II, torrid final with a superb David Day at the six-string, 25 minutes total for all three tracks, excellent business presentation to a live performance I imagine expanded dramatically. Disc of great emotional impact, will please the fans of the genre psycho-doom but also a great opportunity for new members to approach music in a continent still boiling lava."
