The songs on this short, 6 track album, are surprisingly diverse and well constructed. Mad God gives their all with songs like ‘Summoning the Mad God‘ and ‘Skyflung Monoliths‘; as Goat Throne drives a wedge into your soul with tracks like ‘She Devil‘ and ‘Unholy Trinity‘. This combination creates an amazing album full of amazing guitar work, clean drumming, and diverse lyrical/song styles.
Mad God brings the ultra-trippy stoner element of doom forward. With all of ambient tones, I feel like a Mad God listening to it. It is just so well composed and I love the Lovecraft inspired lyrics. All of the tracks have been lovingly mastered by the talented Tim Harbour and the album art is simply incredible.
