Holy crap, this is the shit! Damn crushing good is this latest from Brown Jenkins, Dagonite.
Although the name is kind of funny sounding, this is not rap act or any other similar type of crap. Steadily self-releasing demos (4) since 2005, Brown Jenkins presents its first full length, out on Moribund Cult. The Texan act has narrowed down to one enigmatic founding main man, guitarist Umesh. The first thing that will strike you with this album is that it is loud! Then the obvious word to describe the music would be crushing, bone crushing. This disc will hit you like a truck or even better, a train! Doom/Black Metal to the bone. Simple but efficient compositions that will become the soundtrack of your nightmares. Keep away from the children! Noisy, evil, intense and somewhat melodic this album is. Clean arpeggios are a bit buried under a heavy wall of sound but always forcing in their harmonious hues. And the vocals! Very, very wicked ghostly rasps, the kind that would make the hair of a bold man stand on ends! The guitar work of Umesh is heavily relying on infernal distortion, crushing riffs and melodic arpeggios. This is so loud that even the pounding drums get a bit subdued in the tempestuous sonic scape. Five excellent numbers on this album with my overall favorite being the title track.
Be prepared to be crushed, annihilate and scattered all over the place!
