Zoroaster - Voice of Saturn

'Voice of Saturn'
Review by Elek Malcolm-Madill

Genre/s: Sludge Metal, Psychedelic
For Fans Of: Baroness, Hawkwind, Stoned Jesus

Atlanta's Zoroaster blare through their second full length studio album with great skill in reworking the classic methodology of a doom/sludge album. Blurring the lines between heavy bone-crushing sludge and symphonic stoner melodies, the band makes great used of slow and thick tempos, atmospheric riffs reminiscent of Black Sabbath and Electric Wizard, and even some unorthodox but well placed piano and acoustic segments. A more straightforward summary of Voice of Saturn is basically what I imagine the musical equivalent of taking a few tabs of lsd and then staring at the sun would be like.

1. Intro
2. Spirit Molecule
3. Undying
4. The Last Things
5. White Dwarf
6. Lament of the Master Therion
7. Outro
