Boomkat Product Review:
Leeds-based post-metal six-piece Hundred Year Old Man follow up their debut single Black Fire with Rei, a three track EP.
"Pushing even further into the abyss, this new work opens with Sun & Moon and a monstrous slab of heaving guitars fall out of the atmospheric beginnings. Paul Broughton’s vocal erupts and the track explodes into life, destroying everything in its path until the shadows return to close, leading the way into an interlude that corrodes and drifts before joining these two monolithic pieces together.
The title track demonstrates the staggering ambition that Hundred Year Old Man possess. Ripping into a cathartic sludge reminiscent of Neurosis at their best, it’s a towering, immersive, nine minute journey that refuses to loosen its grip until the dying moments."
