The Sun The Moon The Stars – The God

The Sun The Moon The Stars – The God
Self released – 2015
Metal, Sludge, Stoner, Core, Doom, Punk
Rated: ****

They hail from New Jersey, the four animals that make up The Sun The Moon The Stars. And with their new six track release The God they want to devour you whole. The ground shakes violently and an unholy abyss opens up beneath your feet as the first tones of To Dethrone A God blister your ears. This is loud, bludgeoning and wicked. Meandering between metal, stoner, core and sludge the band sports a couple of vocalists that scream like banshees, howl like madman and growl like otherworldly beasts. There is no rest for the weary here and the march towards the fire goes on relentlessly. Where the sludge metal was filled with hardcore riffs and speedy tempos for the first tracks they slowly turn into doom and darkness and despair for the latter bunch. It’s the fish. Those bastards. Not sure what those little floppers did, but their dastardly ways turned us on with that fifth track, what a monster, what a cathedral, simply stunning. And then there’s the guitar work in the final show stopping song Queen. Ye gods, having your head on an anvil in a steamy hot metal works. We always have and surely will keep worshipping The Sun The Moon The Stars…
