I come from the school where when certain labels release records, you just know that the band is the shit before you even hear them. San Francisco’s Flenser is one of those labels – their two newest vinyl releases prove this fact. Young doom warriors Lycus, from Oakland, have taken their genre to new heights. The Lycus record comes in a dope green colored vinyl, with outstanding artwork from Bryan Proteau. Below, peep some epic flicks of these releases, plus read what the Flenser has to say about them and make sure hear them for yourself – streaming links are not too far away!
It’s unbelievable that this is an initial offering; the complexity, maturity, and crushing, heaving emotions encapsulated within these three compositions is nothing short of breathtaking. These forgotten sons of Samothrace, distant cousins of Anhedonist, purebred descendents of Asunder, have created something truly timeless, and have only just begun their slow, certain rise to the absolute zenith.
Don’t sleep on this.
