From the start, Adelphophagia (I’ve had to cut and paste it to make it through this article) creates a mood similar to being suspended in a warm pool of water, staring off into a panoramic vista of the cosmos. Luder fills the cracks left by modern bands that are overly spacey and/or overly distorted (not that it’s bad to do so, just....played out for a bit). Adelphophagia can boast of well crafted tunes supported by carefully dialed in tones, especially in Hamilton’s guitar. On top of being stacked from start to finish with incredibly listenable hard rock originals, there is a cover of David Bowie’s “I’m Afraid of Americans” that absolutely slays. It had to be mentioned, but don’t get caught up on it. The whole record is really fantastic. Adelphophagia should creep on some of this years ‘best of’ lists. If not, it’s because they didn’t listen to it.
