split

Reviewed by Alex Deller on May 21, 2010
Dual doominess across two sides of wax here, things beginning inauspiciously with Brummie types Alunah's serviceable if vaguely uninspiring plod through detuned chords and winding female vox, all of which doesn't much offend the ear but seems to lack any clear purpose or direction. Queen Elephantine have a shittier name but are eminently preferable, their turgid, swirling lope somehow hypnotic as it traipses from one tarry note to another like a primitive, sleep-deprived Om or a less accomplished Electric Wizard and making for a worthwhile end to an otherwise unmemorable encounter.
