Boomkat Product Review:
Wilderness Heart found Canadian alternative folk/metal behemoths Black Mountain enlisting the services of producers for the very first time. D. Sardy and Randall Dunn (SunnO))), Boris, etc) both helped the band complete their fastest recording turnaround to date, getting the album down and finished in its entirety over a four month period. The band are almost certainly at their very best here, no doubt benefitting from being alleviated of some of the more mundane responsibilities that come as part and parcel of the album-making process. The introductory couplet of 'The Hair Song' and 'Old Fangs' marks a fine start to proceedings, the latter running with crunching guitars, gritty hammond organ and some colourful analogue synth textures. Even better is the superb primordial chug of 'Let Spirits Ride', going all-out for a sound lodged somewhere between the proto-metal of Deep Purple and the blistering camp of Judas Priest. Withdrawing to more spectral acoustic sounds (with a hint of mellotron), 'Buried By The Blues' follows on, showing a rather different, psych-inflected side to the band's material that drops velvety mellotron passages and references to Pink Floyd. Ace.
