Tecumseh - Avalanche & Inundation [Important Records - 2008]

Tecumseh take on doom is very hypnotic, drone based and dense; the slow crush and barely shifting riff’s that populate this the bands debut album often feel like the sonic equivalent of trying to tread though a sucking muddy bog or an endless quick sand desert.

The projects ultra heavy, sludgy and slowing laver moving sound is created using 2 bass guitars, electronics, percussion and guitar. On offer here are three highly lengthy tracks each built around wonderful crushing and engulfing riff landslides, there often seems to be no gaps or breaks in Tecumseh riff sound, it feel just like an endless and slow moving mud river or pouring/ raining down stream of earth  and other debris. Each track locks into its hypnotic and almost unchanging riff cycle, which seems to pull you in deeper and deeper as the tracks processer feeling like an endless descent down and down a spiral stone staircases. And through all the tracks here barely shift from their original start point this never becomes tiresome or stayed- it’s always hypnotic, weighty and highly reward.

Avalanche & Inundation is as crushing and heavy as it is hypnotic and captivating- making an album that you’ll want to be engulfed and flattened by again and again
