Label: Defense Records / Mythrone Promotion / Free Joy Stereo
Style: Sludge Doom Stoner Metal
Debut release from this mysterious Polish trio, Sandbreaker is made of 4 tracks and clocks around 15 minutes of playing time. We're treated here with a mix between Sludge, Stoner, Doom Metal and Funeral Doom Death, or differently said low tuned, oppressive bass lines, fuzzy and repetitive guitar riffs with occasional solos, and a drumming that range from doomy to groovy, and on top of that a guttural vocal a la Funeral Doom Death. Unfortunately for me this is not my cup of tea so I found myself loosing interest quite a lot during those 15 minutes, I found is a mostly dull release with some (a few only) special moments that can be memorable (the brass touches are a touch of color, too bad they are close to none), but overall not on my taste. Fanatics of the genre might disagree with me, so it's better if you check it out yourselves.
