2 stars An "exceptional" textbook of drone-stoner-psychedelic progressive rock.

Torment Of The Metals keeps the same basis as their debut shot Sharing The Sacred - where we can feel their suppressive, narcotic, infernal sound-shouts are in full bloom - and furthermore, has more glistening, more colourful soundscape in the three songs. As a result, this album can get more understandable I feel. One of the most important points is drumming, altering time after time, scene after scene ... especially in Wheel Of Anguish complex Oriental percussion sounds are impressive and splendid. They can strictly hold extreme psychedelia with Orientalism, as heard in Sharing The Sacred. Such a "visible" soundscape should be involved in the dark. Indeed, sure that listening to this whole album may make a listener on a downer more depressive, but on the contrary, may give him much rumblin' power ... an interesting album I wanna say.

Like their debut album for me, this Torment Of The Metals cannot be recommended to all psychedelic progressive rock freaks. Only for stoner freaks. Me too.
