What the…I had no idea that Gollum played in a band! But apparently he’s fronting a doom outfit called Weedeater. They have a penchant for sludgy riffs, lame puns in the album title (their previous album was called “God Luck And Good Speed”) and a vocalist you keep expecting to say ‘my precious’ . Oh, they also like to flirt with Southern rock… check out the banjo in “Whiskey Creek”. Most of all this is loud, dark and obnoxious though but without a whole lot of variation going on, making the album seem a lot longer than it actually is. And doom already isn’t a genre known for speeding things along.
