Zhakathoom Wow! Mothersloth 2.0! This cheese has matured well. Almost gone are the screetchy guitar whines, the vocals are only used (with great effect) only on Dry Tears, and focusing more on a refined exploration of their instrumental sound MotherSloth firmly take deliberate strides into the desert landscape of stoner metal music. The band is almost unrecognizable from their previous release, doomier, more crushing and yet more melodic than before, and I for one like where they are heading.
2 thumbs up! Favorite track: Hazy Blur of Life.

William Lewis Fantastic doom/sludge record. What sets Mothersloth aside from other bands in this genre it they're technical side to their playing. They're precision players at all levels. Looking forward on where htey will take this. Favorite track: Hazy Blur of Life.

Track Name: Hazy Blur of Life
Track Name: Dry Tears
Alone in my room
Trying to explain
What went so wrong
In this endless game

Dreams end up in tears
Screams inside my mind
Faces in the rain
All those memories

I've swallowed my pain
A life in agony
All I see is grey
Let me live again.
