True Widow - As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Centre To The Circumference Of The Earth Cover

Hard to remember the title of, but much easier to listen to...

True Widow evoke ritual doom metal but raise the creative stakes with a general likeability, which in this slow-burning musical genre is rare. Pounding riffs create a crushed shoegaze sound while murky guitars form the album’s backbone. ‘Blooden Horse’ sets the album up for a ketamine-induced trip, but as bassist Nikki Cage comes to the fore on songs ‘Jackyl’ and ‘Skull Eyes’ there’s a shift in dynamics as her vocals push the band into sultry terrain. Influences are obvious but the balance between light and dark is perfect here.
