Steak Number Eight – Kosmokoma

So I haven’t written for a while, owing  to the festive season, post-holiday blues and getting back into my full-time job. I thought I’d start of slow with a long metal album. Steak Number Eight’s newest offering is a monolithic record, providing over an hour of doom enjoyment. I am, of course, talking about Kosmokoma. For those who do not know of Steak Number Eight, let me educate you. They are a doom/sludge metal band based in Belgium and in 2008 they released their debut album when the band members had an average age of 16.5 years. So they are young. But do not let their age mislead you into thinking they are amateurs – they’re not!

Enough crap about the band and let’s talk about the album. Well, it certainly is doom metal and if that is what you crave then this album is for you. The production of the album is what you expect: sludgy guitars and trippy vocals. The drums stood out for me as they are atypically technical for doom metal, with some serious beats being laid down. Doom is not really my thing but I can really appreciate that this a good doom album. The black and white album artwork is eerie and is perfect for this trance inducing sludge music. If sludge metal is your thing then check this out.
