Today’s offering comes from Birmingham (pronounced ‘Birmingum’)-based doom troupe Esoteric. I’m only just becoming aware of the UK’s sludgier scene, and Esoteric’s name was put forward to me by a dude from my home town because, well, he’s the drummer. Best played at loud volumes to get the full effect.
They’ve been going quite a long time – coming up on 18 years now – so it follows that they’re pretty good at what they do. I like it, anyway. What say you, our doomier bretheren?
