Right Sludge Fans what we have here is a creepy and down-tempo brilliant album from LOTHORIAN. A superb band blending Doom, Sludge and Stoner Metal to great effect.

Their debut album - Welldweller - is a 6 song and 30 minute blast of high octane Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs with a big helping of occult based Doom riffs aided along by creepy audio soundbytes. If your a fan of Church Of Misery then your going to be right at home in your crypt here. As Welldweller is one brutal mean fucking album you won't be able to get enough of. 

First track - Witchunt - sets the scene in what is to come over the next 30 mins or so. Don't adjust your headphones. Play as loud you can and rock out to the expert riffage going on.

The vocals even though on the clean style of things are superb through out. They add an eerie sense of wonder to them to match the bleak riffage on show. The album is full of great riffs and Lothorian don't hold back for a second. The 30 mins just flies by. They don't waste a second of that lean, mean running time. They go straight in for the kill.

Check out other excellent tracks - Welldweller, Cult and Shallow Ground. My fave track has to be the 7 minute epic - Doomsday Calling - as it's a great tune full of life and atmosphere with great demonic riffs to match. Wait till the 6th minute mark when a creepy and sublime riff comes out of nowhere with some hollow angelic vocals lurking in the background. Possibly my fave moment on the entire album as it gives the listener a short sense of hope before the darkness creeps backs in to restore decay and destruction.

The album is brilliantly produced and showcases Lothorian's superbly well. The band are great musicians and they prove this time and time again. Welldweller is an excellent album and I expect great things to come from this hugely talented band in the years to come.
