2 stars My first impression of ALASEHIR; Sleep is heavier than Sir Lord Baltimore, Om is more heavier than Sleep, and ALASEHIR is much more heavier than Om ... (all are from United States)

Wait a moment, guess everyone may emphasize their heavy, dark, depressive noise shower but again ask myself what their musical key element is? Hmm, not heaviness, not darkness, nor depression (!) ... sure that silkily ethnic (especially Indo or Oriental) touch, they can shoot glimpse of which, should be the core of ALASEHIR. Suppose you may think it's quite the opposite ... indeed, their heaviness, darkness, distortion, depression previously mentioned are very powerful and aggressive for almost all of listeners. However believe me they are not simply a heavy metal outfit but of extreme psychedelia magnified with their Oriental soundscape. Of course, NOT only electric sitar solo in the third track Seven Tongues can let me mention so. Through the whole Sharing The Sacred, we can hear their delicate (but enjoyable for them) sound proceeding, over their complex (namely not simply heavy) and underground sounds flung against us.

Maybe cannot realize the silky touch without analytic listening but we can enjoy their heavy-dark-depressive sounds, not as a stoner progressive rock outfit but simple stoner rock one. Not on the mainstream so I cannot recommend ALASEHIR to all psychedelic progressive rock fans (and can give only two stars) but highly to all stoner rock fans, including me!
