Methadone Skies – Colosseus


Methadone Skies – Colosseus
Self released – 2016
Metal, Psych, Prog
Rated: ****

It's raining wafers, hallelujah it's raining wafers from Romania, we've got the outfit Methadone Skies with their third release Colosseus. A follow-up to the debut from 2012, Enter The Void and the 2014 record Eclectic Electric. These guys bring it all instruments all the time. Lying somewhere between psych, stoner, metal and progressive the band sets themselves apart from the more doomish side of the instrumental spectrum. The title track being my favorite cut is all encompassing of the aforementioned styles. There is something haunting yet beautiful about Colosseus. The band is killer but I have to give extra shouts to the guitarists, especially Casian for bringing the banjo. I myself fool with a 6 string banjo and feel more bands should incorporate instruments outside their realm of normalcy. The rest of the synthetic opiate outfit would be Wehry on the guitar, Mihai on Bass, and none other than Retea behind the mighty kit and extras. In closing Methadone skies rule their airspace with a different brand of stoner metal. Haha, I'm listening to the final cut on the record as I’m writing this. Listen to the 6:50 mark of masters of convulsions alone and try and tell me these fellas don't rule!!! Thanks guys! Peace.
