Judd Madden- Cosmic Black Wizard Demon Horse Lord (2017)

Continuing in the great tradition of Australia releasing excellent Doom/Sludge Metal comes Judd Madden's "Cosmic Black Wizard Demon Horse Lord". What you get with release is a heavy slab of Drone, Sludge, and Instrumental Stoner Doom being dragged by a sloth riding a giant snail through desolate landscapes. That might not the art that it is featured on the cover but it might as well should be (someone needs to make this!). Clocking in at almost an hour, this is a pretty straight forward with no frills and heavy metal thunder. Toward the end though on the last track we get the calm after the storm and shit gets chill. A pretty sharp contrast from all the headbanging and nodding that is being asked of you from the previous tracks. We've been featuring a lot of great Instrumental Stoner Doom on this blog as of lately and this is no exception. The sound on this is dank and full. When the strings hit that low note, it's a satisfying blow that I personally didn't want to end. Judd Madden is a beast and a one man doomsday device, threatening to turn the earth into fucking mad max fury road with his cataclysmic song of destruction and doom. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Cheers! -Samir
