Way back in July 2013, The Sludgelord reviewed the EP “Hand of Glory” by today’s featured band The Lumberjack Feedback, remarking that “If you like your doom crushing and epic- and fancy trying something a bit different then why not give this excellent band a try? It ticks all the boxes and offers a rather unique slant on a familiar sound” Indeed when we think of most of today’s “Doom” bands is it rare that you find something truly unique, The Lumberjack Feedback on the other hand stand out with a dual drummer attack and a purely instrumental approach to their music, demonstrating a certain joie de vivre, but retaining a thirst for propulsive and skull crushing riffs.
Finally as we enter the New Year 2016, The Lumberjack Feedback are ready to unleash their debut full length unto thee, entitled “Blackened Visions”. With crystal clear recording thanks to the Electrik Box studio (SEKTEMTUM, INSAIN…) and benefitting from the mastering wizardry of Colin Marston (GORGUTS, KRALLICE…). “Blackened Visions” is a compelling listen and exhibits utterly progressive and forward-thinking cinematic songwriting, as a result their music crushes genre boundaries incorporating elements of Post Rock, Sludge Metal, Doom Metal, or Stoner Rock into one truly unique record
“Blackened Visions” will be released via Kaotoxin on January 15th and will be available on CD//DD//LP here and today it gives us great pleasure to present The Lumberjack Feedback’s debut self titled video from that album in conjuction with Dooweet PR and Noisey. Check it out below.
