Within the Church of thee Overlords

This is a fine two volume set released in 2007 by Southern Lord Records, both discs feature some raved-up, loud, noisy stoner-type rock. The first volume leads of with a band called The Hidden Hand which features the vocal work of Wino (St. Vitus). This is followed by a creepy track from Japan's always interesting Boris, entitled "Farewell".....along the rest of the way, we get some trashers from Burning Witch, Asbestos Death, and Leviathon, as well as some long, trippy tracks from Wolves in the Throneroom ("Queen of the Borrowed Light") and the remarkable Oren Ambarchi, who is an Australian multi-instrumentalist who has released I'd guess over 100 albums and colaborations.....he concludes the disc with the 13 minute "Inamorata", of which I'd like to hear opinions (as with any of this stuff that is new to you).

Volume 2 contains a few familiar names, notably Weed Eater, Om, and Sun 0))), return engagements from Burning Witch, Wolves in the Throneroom, and Boris, this time in a colaboration with Merzbow. Two highlights for my money are Striborg's "Psychedelic Nightmare" and "Only Vinyl is Real" from Burial Chamber.

As I've said before stoner rock/hard rock are probably the least effective genres for the release of comps, simply because they are as far from singles formats as we can get, and singles really, in general, make for the best comps (replicating the classic radio experience)......
If I am in the mood I just may do another post tonight, we shall see.......if not, more good stuff on the agenda for the rest of the week!
