Get your groove on with Warchief.

The composition is very much rock'n'roll with a good dynamic of rhythm and pace done with a definite cross of northern European and American flavours.

Finnish Doom rockers Warchief released their self titled LP mid way through 2015 and through Phono Sphera records this thundering mother is now available on vinyl.

The album is a thick and juicy slab of raw richness with the usual but perfectly executed fat fuzz smothered guitars, rumbling bass, solid drums and melodic vocals. Although there have been many great effects drenched Doom albums this is yet another great example of letting the rhythms, tones and attitude of the music speak directly for the most part without effects. Keeping with this rawness it's nice to hear that although there is a level of layering with the vocals it's subtle and gets by fine without the tried and true use of chorus.

The composition is very much rock'n'roll with a good dynamic of rhythm and pace done with a definite cross of northern European and American flavours. As is the style of Doom, Warchief do not disappoint with epic bouts of trance inducing riffs with subtle rhythmic variations to keep you on your toes. With the shortest track being just shy of 6 minutes and the longest being just over 21, for those who are already fans of this genre, you should have a fare idea of what to expect before the first listen.

If you're up for a good bit of fuzz heavy mind journey music, Warchief are sure not to disappoint. Check them out on Band Camp and grab yourself a copy before the sell out.
