AllMusic Review by

On their debut album, these Swedish psychedelic rock revivalists pay tribute to their precedents-setting peers, Black Sabbath and Cathedral, with a collection of bludgeoning riffs and slow, fuzzed out boogie -- a style that will be all too familiar to fans of Kyuss, Queens of the Stoneage, and High on Fire. Evidently Sweden produced notable heavy psych bands, such as Motorpsycho Roachpowder, Grand Magus, Half Man, and Mammoth Volume. On their debut for Beard of Stars, they deliver a collection of fuzzed-out hard rock that, while maybe a little over-produced, results in an engaging album that will appeal to fans of the hard psychedelic and stoner rock scenes.
