HEXER “Cosmic Doom Ritual”

“Cosmic Doom Ritual”
(Vendetta Records)

Battle Helm Rating

I honestly don’t know what to expect from this band based on the band name and the album title. The name tells me this is going to be black metal (could be doom) but the title implies doom or stoner. I guess there is only one way to find out. By grabbing the goat by the horns. I was wrong about what this band is all about musically. This is doomy for sure but in a funeral doom way. This is heavy as fuck and slower than a sloth. You gotta have the patience for this kinda stuff if you’re going to get anything from listening to this. I have been a fan of this style ever since I heard Finnish Unholy and Esoteric back in the 90s when it was just ultra slow doom. Every now and then today I do stumble upon a funeral doom band that triggers my interest. HEXER might not make my top 5 albums for 2017 but I do like what I hear. Anders Ekdahl
