As the day’s light retreats in the onset on winter and the night succumbs to brutal, blackened cold, what a better time to comfort yourself with dark, brain-eroding psychedilic doom? Canada’s Sons Of Otis know this, strategically scheduling the drop of their latest opus, the accurately titled, foundation-shaking Siesmic to tie in with a period of seasonal flux and asspociated introversion. It’s with this kind of environment that you can fully explore the complex textures, and enveloping, hypnotic frequencies. It’s not all button-basing and dial-twiddling though, with Sons Of Otis once again reclaiming their seat next to the Melvins in the Black Sabbath School of Doom and Sludge. Having clocked up 20 years of service since forming in the early ’90’s, the Toronto trio maintain a respectable momentum with Seismic, a potent, sluggish and strong-fisted album with depth and character that slowly unfurls and infects with each listen.
