The Holy Corrupt

Album Overview

  • Echo laden doom

  • Gritty production makes for some classic doom minimalist landscapes

  • Sophomore release from the Californian duo

  • Donny’s vocals are no question at the forefront and in your face. He does not hide well behind the echo at times. Credit the varied style attempts

  • Entertaining first listen that grows tiring very quickly

  • Last three tracks show significant signs of improvement... difficult to get through first three

Track by Track Breakdown:

1. The Witch Is Coming (10:45)

Excellent intro and undercurrent. Three different vocal styles disrupt and derail the rotation on this one.


2. I Want to Touch You (14:12)

Disturbing title with very superficial stomach turning lyrics.


3. Backwoods Banshee (8:12)

Good start that fall flat once vocals kick in.


4. { S P A C E R } 2:19


5. Earthed (8:15) Standout Track

By far the best track. Nice jazz-fueled percussion and wonderful doom contrast. Oh…..and an instrumental.


6. Inflicter of Karma (8:04)

Better as Donny tones things down with the vocals. Nice fretwork undercurrent on this one.


7. Come to Dying (14:18)

Some nice classic doom moments on this track. Classic Sleep feel at times..

Brew Pairing

Doom by Founders Brewing Company. At 12.4 ABV this may numb your senses a bit to endure the first 3 tracks. A collision of worlds, the intense hop character of our Imperial IPA mingles with the warm vanilla and oak notes imparted from the time spent in our favorite bourbon barrels.
