But You Rule! Doom Album of the year? Discussable, ok. At least it is the freshest injection to the genre for a long time. Still this has roots goddamn!
Helsinkis Caskets Open develop further the amazing demo and distill their own distinctive blend of cold, extremely violent but still subtle warm sound on this debut LP.
Razorsharp edges in sound and morbid, social aware lyrics. A clichéless mix of drunken, anti-clerical and sleazy DoomPunk, imagine Joy Division fucking roughly with St.Vitus in a dark night on a graveyard.
A superb monilithic gatefold on 350g cardboard rounds this up. The vinyl mastering at the the Exchange Studios UK secured the transformation of the necrophiliac sound to vinyl.
