The super heavy fuzz debut by Blacklab. The doom witch duo from Osaka Japan.
Eight tracks of distorted riffs, howls and ghostly vocals, coupled with bags of riot girrl attitude and lo-fi bravado.

Listening to Blacklab brings back that frisson of excitement you got (those who may be old enough to remember) when you heard Mudhoney’s ‘Superfuzz Bigmuff’ for the first time.
But grunge they are not, and neither are they ‘occult rock’.
Being a ‘Doom’ band, there is a bucket load of Sabbath worship in there for sure, but Blacklab have a vibe and experimental undertow akin more to their countrymen ‘Boris’ and the souped up lo-fi fuzz of Ty Segall or Comets On Fire.
It points forward rather than back.
Tracks like ‘Black Moon’ ‘Hidden Garden’ ‘Spoon’ ‘Symptom Of The Blacklab’ and ‘His Name Is …’ twist, burn and boil into the red. ‘Spoon’ and ‘Warm Death’ offer moments of relief and crushing noise.
And ‘Big Muff’ is … well … 9 minutes of drum-less fuzz, that will probably do serious damage to your speakers.
What's not to love.

This is the exclusive NHS mix of the album by Wayne Adams.
