Album Review

Fleshpress – “Pillars” – [Rusty Crowbar]

mickeyslim   5/1/2013   12-inch, A Library


Flesspress is some amount of folks out of Finland, I think. There’s only 6 tracks here on 4 sides, so you know there’s a couple sidelong treats here. Sometimes heady, spacey ambience, until a heavy, stoney electric guitar creeps in, with occasional throaty vox.

A side starts with quiet cloud jangles and goes into a super slow doom, which fits appropriately for the title I Am Your Sacrifice. Second track is a bit more spacey, and wprks with the cloudey space dream from before.

The B and C sides are the sidelongs and take you through a few different emotions and speeds, B being the slower of the two, and a little bit scarier, and creepier. Feels swampy and mucky, whereas the C side is a little more spacey, more stoney and fades in and out with different jams.

D-side is a little anxious in how slow it gets, like molasses gaining speed as it heats up, the last track is like being stuck in the electric train tunnel and hearing all the wind in the distance, until it seems to sound like it’s in reverse.

Cool stoney doom metal, ambient and spacey also, Rock ‘n’ Roll dreamscapes…
