Wicked King Wicker - God Is Busy... Save Yourself [Cold Spring Records - 2009]

‘God Is Busy... Save Yourself’ is a truly suffocating, crushing & black as night excise in sludge infected & barbwire noise ripped doom metal. This truly is one of the thickest, nastiest sounding doom records I’ve ever come across- that is best approached only  if you enjoy both doom & all out noise mix.

On this, the projects fourth full length WKW offer up three near on twenty minute tracks that mix together deadly slow crawling doom riffs & black guitar abuse, sludge industrial stark percussion, all manner muffled, growled & darkly grunted vocal matter, sheets of  tar black feed-back & all manner of juddering, jagged, brain-slicing dark noise matter. There truly is zero hope or any pleasing or harmonic elements anywhere with-in any of the lengthy doom torturous on offer here. Each track here locks-in and slowly slugs, batters & drills into you until your left powerless and drained.  The only downside about the whole thing is in some ways it’s a bit too torturous & one dimensional for its own good; & at times a little samey from one track to the next. But ultimately if you want the most seared, noised-up doom hit ever, your unlikely to find anything to compete with this nasty bastard of a record.

‘God Is Busy... Save Yourself’ is really the kind of record that should come with some sort of health warning telling the listener to stay away from sharp objects, hallucinogenic drugs & the easily disturbed during the playing of the record- you have being warned!
