John Cratchley The tanpura drone adds an extra dimension to these jams and it gives the music an obvious Eastern edge...plus the double drummers: gives it all an intrinsic ritual feel...very nice indeed! I think it's lower key and more centred than the blurb suggests and not "abysmal doom" (which does the music an injustice), however.

Brad C Hellish, clean, abysmal, are words that come to mind.

Metal clanging percussions, apocalyptic breakdowns, and psychedelic screams that echo throughout eternity.

\Fits right into a playlist of other great doom, and Om especially with the sitar vibrations. Favorite track: Crone.

Maxrock Doom done different. Refreshing and massively enjoyable. Favorite track: Crone.

Except me, I am Autumn in the Summer

Crone 18:15
In my life, in my dreams, it builds up In my life, in my dreams, you bring me

Snake 10:44
Arms yearning, am I home again Why lie on, won't you make it out And the saints have been here But in bliss and not in shame Bathed in wine, and not in sand Glimmering, glistening, suffering Simmering, glistening, suffering Dirt in my throat Drowned in my own Drawn like a snake I will swallow it, swallow it I am home again

about

CD on Heart & Crossbone Records (Israel)
LP on Cosmic Eye Records (Greece)

"Scarab is Queen Elephantine's 4th album: A work of grandeur which finds the band digging even deeper into delirious and psychedelic threnodies, abysmal doom observances and mild invocations, offering deep, heavy sounds straight from the soul-realm woven through the geometries of the cosmos - A funerary procession danced by a mighty double-trio of two axes, two drumsets, and two insectoid drones."
-Heart & Crossbone Records description
