“The original album from these Swiss doomsters was only released on vinyl last year and reviewed by our resident ultimaniac Scott Waters. Roxx Productions decided to make this rare piece more available to the headbanging public by reissuing it in two new formats. The single-disc version has the seven original songs and adds the bonus tracks ‘Golden Voice’ and ‘Lines.’

“The lyrical content is strictly biblical, and when singer Matt Brand kicks into his gravel-tongued mode, there’s heaviness aplenty, especially on the tune ‘The Stream of Forgetfulness.’ Pylon’s cover of Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’ disassembles the original with its slow delivery. I can appreciate the doom metal more than the stoner rock here, but all in all, I’m glad the light of day has shone on this band – surely we will hear more from Pylon.” –Chris Gatto, HM Magazine
