MORASS OF MOLASSES - These Paths We Tread

MORASS OF MOLASSES - These Paths We Tread


Although there's been an explosion of heavy blues influenced doom in the past five years (thanks ORANGE GOBLIN) this English trio do seem to have a off kilter sound which I'd say scores a few points in my book. Hailing from Reading these three wannabe early 70's looking vagabonds start off by taking the basic style of groove laden doom and sludge then cut open sections of it to insert some atmospheric guitar melody minus the thud. 

Perfect examples would be, well all six of the seven tracks on here. I don't get what was up with "The Ritual". Some Celtic witchcraft something or other which seemed out of place on here. The second tier rock of the 70's is back. Have at it and maybe I'll dust off my CACTUS and ATOMIC ROOSTER records.
