The album opens with with down tuned reverb that looms between every subsequent note struck thereafter, while Soph Day’s majestic harmonizing paves the road for a psychedelic introspection into the occultist’s wonderland. Filled with groove that few can balance in reference to their tone White Hoarhound kills it track after track while showcasing something new woven into the duration, leaving its mark upon your subconscious to surface in those small moments when you can’t get a tune out of your head.
Not unlike the quality of a darkened fairy-tale, Alunah casts the same spell over your senses, all the while appearing beautiful and majestic you cannot help but feel as if something sinister is lurking just beneath the surface. It is this same quality that left me somewhat astonished, especially considering I’m not a huge fan of doom/stoner releases, but I absolutely love originality and passion….and this band delivers those by the metric fuck-ton.
Bottom line, Alunah set the standard yet again for doom ridden melodies in the form of White Hoarhound. I really cannot stress how good this album is and how much I suggest that everyone give it a spin and let it consume you…so why not just listen below. White Hoarhound is out now via PsycheDOOMelic Records, get into it.
