Orthodox: Axis

Album Review

Sevilla-based psychonauts put a new spin on doom

Spanish avant-doom act Orthodox have cut their lineup from a trio to a duo – Marco Serrato (bass, vocals) and (drums) – for their first album in four years, Axis. By limiting the guitars to the mantric Medea, partially written 18 years ago and loyal to the free-form progressions of their past, Orthodox sound more potent than before, thanks to Marco Serratos’s bass, with its Warhorse ground-rumble, and drummer Borja Díaz’s fluid, jazzy playing that purposely fills the void in a very direct, upfront fashion.
