Transcending Obscurity

April 2017 Highlights – TO Staff

Brume (USA) – Rooster (Doom Metal, DHU Records and Doom Stew Records)

I’m not going to say too much about this, other than to note that it’s possible that Brume have just released the doom metal album of the year. Yes, ‘Rooster’ is that good. Mixing a healthy worship of all things riffy, alongside a keen appreciation of psychedelic atmospheres and depth, this album is a great combination of both. With a captivating vocalist who shows off her voice in the strongest light from the moment she first starts singing to the close of the album, Brume delight, entertain, and move with their delicious compositions. Flawless. ~ Nigel Holloway
