Boomkat Product Review:
London avant-metallers Hey Colossus are able to distil all the most ferocious and uncompromising elements of the heaviest strands of rock music, having assembled a fearsome album's worth of low-end grind, high speed thrash and syrupy psychedelia. After the bracing kraut-ish repetitions of 'War Crows', the band enter into the single-figures bpm counts of sludge-athon 'Tight Collar', only to dispense copious volumes of filth for the barely intelligible 'Are Nice Men'. And then it gets really vicious. On the cosmic stoner wigout 'Fire Up The Tambourine', the production seems to devour the frilly wah-wah guitar solos flapping about the mix, only to spit them out as pulverised oscillations. This is only the halfway point, and there's no let-up until the final thirteen-minute riff meltdown 'Overlord Rapture In Vines Part 2' which might well be the best thing here, conjuring images of Boris, Bardo Pond and other such psych-metal behemoths.
