PSYCHOTIC GARDENING - Hymnosis - CD - Indie - 2014
Doom seems to be everywhere these days. It's a kind of what everyone and
their mother seem to be jumping on the bandwagon of. A lot of bands try very
hard, very few succeed. These guys fall into the latter category.
Psychotic Gardening's third release is a fusion of doom and death metal that
pays off in a big way. It reminded us of Dismember in a lot of ways, though
with slightly more interesting riffing. The highlight of the album is their
cover of "Open Casket" by Death.
The band continues to evolve its style with every release, without falling
into the trap of being formulaic and repetitive that many doom acts fall victim
to. Pay attention to these guys, They're going places. (8/10)
