Atolah - Relics (used)

  | mCD

Atolah-Relics (used) Aussie instrumental sludge!
Relics is a great combination of stoner groove and that prime Southern sludge swing, sort of like Eyehategod mellowed out and calmed down. It took me months of listening though to figure out exactly what album Atolah's debut reminds me of: Electric Wizard's Let Us Prey (high praise indeed to evoke the name of the mighty EW!). Take out the vocals and Atolah is surfing the same stoned and sludgy "Master of Alchemy" seas, riding the same "Priestess of Mars" waves, crashing on the same "We, The Dead" shores. Rare is the band that rates an Electric Wizard comparison, but this is an album that I have returned to many times in the last month and it sounds better each time. While they will likely never usurp any Dopethrone, with Relics Atolah puts their name on the short list of possible challengers to the king.
