Quote from C.B. site : The 4th album from Kansan doom-prog / dirge juggernauts JUMBO'S KILLCRANE. Leaner, darker, and far more crushing than their previous releases, The Slow Decay finds the Killcrane in an altogether apocalyptic frame of mind, unleashing subsonic frequencies that resonate with the decay of ages. Their monstrous riffs are more angular than ever, but this new manifesto also delivers soaring, stygian melodies that earlier releases only hinted at. Haunting and heartbreakingly heavy, the trio wind together barbed-wire hooks that snarl themselves around snail's pace rhythms and tarpit riffs.
Quote from label: "Double LP limited to 300 copies.
This is the epitome of suicidal, dreary, misanthropic, funeral doom black metal.
4 chapters with 70 minutes of depressive atmosphere and long harsh riffs.
Each riff just depressively repeats itself over and over, building up, until the song will suddenly change direction but you will only get even more sucked in…"
Ohio's Sofa King Killer are on a bender. Blending hook-laden doom riffs, grooving tempo shifts, blues licks and whiskey-burned vocals, SKK are out to kick your ass. High-quality sludge/metal/hardcore, that draws from the likes of Down, Eyehategod and Entombed, yet with a feel of their own. Well-executed and heavy as hell, Sofa King Killer's memorable grooves will leave you deaf. -Thunderdome Booking.com
