Weird Tales – The Fall


Weird Tales – The Fall
Self released – 2018
Doom, Psych, Rock, Metal, Sludge
Rated: ****

The first physical release The Fall by the Polish three-piece Weird Tales is actually a combination of their two earlier released EP’s Shiny Void and Weird Tales. Both up for ‘name your price’ on bandcamp and so if the digital version of the new release called The Fall. But for the physical version they went all out and made an awesome looking cd-box containing stickers of the cover art of the earlier EP’s and two cd’s with the six tracks. The album art is mystical and suits the music perfectly. Psychedelic doom that meanders and drags you along towards the abyss, sometimes turning over into a bit more sludge or more metallic. But the doom is prevalent and heavy my friends. The doom rides high and mighty, dronish in nature and minimal in its approach and recalls bleak vistas described in weird tales told by the likes of Samuel Taylor Coleridge or Edgar Allen Poe. Especially on those first three tracks. The second cd contains a slightly more psychedelic approach with a little bit of dustier air and foggy light. But that might just as easily be only a mirage; for there is still little hope on the horizon. And darkness and decay and death held illimitable dominion over all…
