Zac's "Double Dose": Rituals / Sky Burial

Rituals: Rituals 

     This weeks Double Dose comes from a new found passion of mine Replenish Records out of Washington D.C.. These guys have a solid line-up of bands that will suite our niche here at Heavy Planet, so be sure to take a closer look... we are just scratching the surface. 
     Rituals is an Arizona behemoth, who formed in 2010. I cannot begin to spell out the amount of fervor and energy that await virgin listeners to Rituals. This self-titled debut is a power-house of emotion, leaning equally on melody as primordial aggression. The vocals seethe wretchedly between moments of sonic psychedelia and pummeling doom, and the track arrangement carries the album seamlessly, but be patient most songs run in upwards of ten minutes. If you are a listener that tends to shy away from lengthy songs, here is the record that will change your mind. In my opinion, Rituals have orchestrated these massive songs in such a way that allow time to disappear. The albums run-time of forty minutes vanishes in what seems a quarter of the time. I applaud this to great song writing and genius arrangements. Get your free download at bandcamp, but something this good deserves to be owned on vinyl. To support Rituals pick up a copy at Big Cartel or Replenish Records' Store.

Sky Burial: Where Four Rivers Flow 

     Up through the troposphere, the stratosphere, and finally into the exosphere... this is where we will temporarily linger. Why, you ask? Well, because we are listening to Sky Burial's latest Where Four Rivers Flow. Sky Burial are a sludgy, post-metal quartet from Nashville, Tennessee and Where Four Rivers Flow is their organic and living composition. The majority of the album is tranquil and calm, building an eager anxiety to a very positive and warming climax. This crests with the track Quietly, where one can sense a sudden change, leaving that peak in the exosphere. But, soon return to our soothing loft, very fitting for a sky burial. Where Four Rivers Flow is out on Replenish Records, who are offering this excellent release as a free download at bandcamp. A vinyl copy can be purchase at the Replenish Records' Store, exceptional cover art included.
