Guilty! Guilty! Guilty! – Birth of The Prison

Guilty! Guilty! Guilty! – Birth of The Prison
Self released – 2012
Rock, Metal, Stoner
Rated: ***

Guilty! Guilty! Guilty! might be the first outfit that uses its music for the greater good entirely. Not just because it wants to lift your spirits or because it contains a message to better the world. But because all proceeds will go to a charity called SPOWE-Uganda, which tries to improve the lives of orphans and elderly in the war torn country of Uganda. And if this makes you think the music on its first record Birth of The Prison must sound like a folksy hippie type thing you are completely mistaken. For this one man band delivers a very industrial kind of stoner metal that burrows deep into your every fiber. With programmed drums and ethereal vocal lines the sludgy riffs draw you along on a casual yet sensitive and emotional journey. It might miss a little of the organic sound a full-fledged live-recorded band would attain; but it makes up for that in the amount of great ideas and a very own atmospheric biotope. Metal with a sort of silky haze; grandiose and without any pretensions…
