Funeral Horse – Sinister Rites Of The Master
Artificial Head Records – 2014
Rock, Stoner, Doom, Sludge, Garage
Rated: *****

I am a time traveler from the year 2020. And I shall never reveal who the thirteenth doctor is. It is dangerous knowledge; and almost all knowledge shall be outlawed in the future. And if we want to make sure that all that will come to pass ends up resulting in better things; we shall have to perform Sinister Rites Of The Master. Sorry about that; it got weird for a second perhaps. But that’s what this new album by the three Houston unemployable potheads from Funeral Horse does to ya once it goes on repeat. It will soak your brain and curdle your blood. It will have your limbs twist involuntarily and make your medulla oblongata explode. This album has so much going on and it is all done with this intense macabre hue. The band deals out justice in a world that has gone haywire; they return to the old laws and honor those that were put in place by their master. Whoever that may be. But is their punky doom and sludgy garage build on deep dark riffs and open aired drums one minute and rumbling and rolling the next that turns you on before you can tune out. The husky distorted and twisted voice on top of the damn fine trekking bass does the rest. Add to this the tiny art or perhaps new wave influences, especially on Communist’s Blues, which will have you remember the Wall of Voodoo days turn this incredible ride into something highly addictive and equally breathtaking. This calls for a revolution…
