Hell Is a Door to the Sun

Released: Mar 2011
Label: Relapse Records
Originally released on a tiny label in 2002 and containing only one track under six minutes, this Little Rock swamp-sludge outfit's dense-grinding second album already showed them hollering out of some cave way out in metal's acid-noise-drone left field. Several songs hinge on demonic spoken incantations or sampled film dialogue; 10-minute closer "The River/Traskwood" opens with what sounds like a radio preacher cataloguing societal ills and ends with an inter-band argument. But the pinnacle is psychedelic death-rocker "Stoner Tree" -- partly about how, even in Hell, one can still get high.
