4/10 Mladen
 

HIGHGATE - Black Frost Fallout - CD - Total Rust - 2011

review by: Mladen Škot

Slow doomy sludge couldn't be much more obvious than this. A few outstanding ideas are few and far between, the rest is made of riffs that are basically no riffs, beats that are basically no beats, and distorted shouts. Oh, and a few live tracks sounding like, hmmm, live versions of the abovementioned stuff. Also, there's an occasional spoken clip talking about marijuana, but those are just boring. Still, Highgate at least turn all of this into proper songs and the sound is better than you'd expect. So, this compilation is basically music without music, and we can't exactly imagine what frame of mind you would need to enjoy it, but it's listenable enough. (4/10)
