■ Fit­tingly for an al­bum which fre­quently looks to the skies for in­spi­ra­tion, Sabo­teurs Of The Sun finds Lon­don­ers Limb burst­ing out of the doom scene to ex­plore new mu­si­cal fir­ma­ments. Amongst th­ese 10 tracks, you’ll en­counter plenty of in­ven­tion and rocket-fu­elled blasts into the far reaches of the rock cos­mos. Sure, the bur­bling synths that make them­selves known at the out­set of Death In Ab­sen­tia don’t pre­vent th­ese tunes from be­ing doom num­bers, and im­mensely pow­er­ful doom num­bers at that. But at the other end of the scale, the spacey am­bi­ence that per­me­ates As­tro­naut and 100 Years sug­gests Pink Floyd might have been get­ting a fair few spins on the Limb turntable. And most sur­pris­ing is Sur­vival Knife, which comes on like Killing Joke singer Jaz Cole­man fronting Man­cu­nian alt.prog­gers Am­pli­fier. When Limb go heavy, they’re as catchy as they are colos­sal; when they ex­per­i­ment, they shine like stars. OLLY THOMAS
