Boomkat Product Review:
Manned by the enviable line-up of Al Cisneros (of Om and Sleep fame), Dale Crover (Melvins), Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and Scott 'Wino' Weinrich (Saint Vitus), Shrinebuilder is a massively exciting prospect for underground metal followers. This super-limited, deluxe vinyl edition (complete with download code) arrives in a run of just 250 copies for the UK, and it's a thing of immense beauty: the vinyl itself is coloured with an orange/red swirl (LP1) and a blue/purple swirl (LP2), while the gatefold sleeve looks incredible with exactly the kind of laboured over artwork you'd want from such an epic release. The music lives up to the presentation, merging sublimely heavy riffs and rock-solid musicianship with a progressive, edgy realisation. Get one while you can.
