Listen to Herem

The Pitch: 5 piece doom band from Finland sounds a bit like Trapped Within Burning Machinery with some Sabbath overtones.

What I Like: "Earworm" is certainly the key word here.  Pretty much any doom band that catches my ear has a strong handle on crafting some infectious melodies into their sound.  Herem are extremely good at this as evidenced from the opening song's exotic-sounding leads and compelling vocal performances.  They have casted a spell on me with their dark psychodelics and lingering bass grooves; one that is very effective.

What I Don't Like: The last two songs aren't quite as strong as the first three.

The Verdict:  Another crowd pleasing extreme doom act.  I imagine a lot of dead-headed throbbing of the crowd at shows.

Flight's Fav's:  Scars to Summon, Snakes of the Third Moon, Drowning Steed
