LIVID

BE­NEATH THIS SHROUD, THE EARTH ERODES (PROS­THETIC) DOOMY AND GLOOMY MIN­NE­AP­O­LIS QUAR­TET AT­TEMPT TO BURY TRUMP

Kerrang! (UK) - - REVIEWS -

■ THE DAY after Don­ald Trump won the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, Livid de­cided to re­write the lyrics for their Pros­thetic de­but. In turn, the Min­ne­ap­o­lis quar­tet have painted the bleak­est of fu­tures on the fol­low-up to their two-part, 22 minute de­but Sint. Over the course of five mo­lasses-thick doom tracks, Livid sat­is­fy­ingly stay in the same gear for much of the al­bum’s du­ra­tion.the del­i­cately omi­nous opener De­scend kicks off their eye-claw­ing grief fest, be­fore giv­ing way to the over­whelm­ing swell and crash of Noth­ing. Al­bum high­light Sins Of God sips from the black­ened chal­ice of Tony Iommi, while al­bum closer Into Noth­ing veers on the ma­jes­tic. So while The Don­ald’s cack-handed term in of­fice threat­ens to de­rail the USA, at least we got a de­cent doom al­bum out of it. Swings and mis­er­able round­abouts, right? DOWN­LOAD: Sins Of God. FOR FANS OF: Saint Vi­tus, Neu­ro­sis.
