Slabdragger: Rise Of The Dawncrusher

Album Review

South London’s stoner-doom survivors light up a rocket

It’s been five long years since Slabdragger released their debut Regress, and during that period the Croydon riff lords were put through the proverbial mill.

However, collapsed lungs, departing drummers and “recording difficulties” can’t keep a good cosmic doom band down, so they’ve returned with monstrous stoner sci-fi odyssey Rise Of The Dawncrusher. Comprising five tracks that clock in at an hour’s worth of music, it’s a triumph. Set in the distant future and featuring gorgeous Jack Kirby-inspired cover art, it’s a speaker-shaking beast that is at times unfathomably heavy.
