I am reminded of an old blog which existed around ten years ago called Not Heavy Enough (I'm sure it doesn't exist anymore) where the creator took albums and either pitch shifted them to a lower tuning or, fitting to the blog's clarion call, slowed the albums down in an artificial 45RPM to 33 ⅓ RPM adjustment. You know, like when you play your 45s on 33 -- it only gets better. Philadelphia's Burial Fog believe this creed: not heavy enough, not slow enough, not crushing enough, but you can try.

In this new, three song EP, Burial Fog's doom is superlative: it's extraordinarily heavy, exceedingly minimal, and nightmarish almost to a fault. Bordering on a difficult listen, Burial Fog's harsh, pounding doom is a great destroyer, one which doles out pain with disregard and malice.

Burial Fog releases August 14th on their Bandcamp.
