Doom Metal




Close the Hatch have been developing their sound for several years, but based on samples of their earlier work this is clearly their best; further in this direction please. It feels like they didn't quite take their sound seriously enough until they got to Modern Witchcraft. It's sludge style with a modicum of doom, but the real beauty here are the vocals, which capture the attention and then quickly smother it with sadness.
