Following up last year's 'Burning Off Impurities' and their recent 'Take Refuge in Clean Living' EP, Grails return with their darkest, heaviest record yet. Written and recorded over the last 18 months, 'Doomsdayer's Holiday' delivers on the promises made by their previous albums, taking equal pride in smoky psychedelics and mountain-ascending riffs. With Faust conspirator Steven Wray Lobdell and Earth/Sun O))) producer Randall Dunn as engineers - not to mention drummer Emil Amos having recently become the new other half of Om - Grails' avant-metal leanings are evident as always. But 'Doomsdayer's Holiday' finds their already-broad palette continually expanding with 70s European film noir and cosmic free jazz explorations to compliment the Middle Eastern psychedelic folk-metal the group is already known for.
