"Orthodox is a power trio whose sonic larder is filled to the brim with such cold storage 90s basics as The Melvins, Sleep, Trouble, Earth, Sunn0))), Thrones, plus theyve added to the mix an inevitable ur-trudge of early Sabbath, DANCE OF THE LEMMINGS-period Amon Duul 2 and Yankee Sabbalikes Bang (Future Shock), with unconscious nods to early Japrock deadbeats Speed Glue & Shinki (Red Doll), Joey Smiths Philipino walking dead Juan De La Cruz (Wanna Take You Home) and Flower Travellin Bands evenmorestrungoutthantheoriginal versh of Black Sabbath or (again) Flowers own Hiroshima." Julian Cope.
Gran Poder is their debut recording. The result is a lethargic music with obsesive repetitions, minimalism, feedback, distortion and endless drones creating a primitive trance inducing atmosphere. “Gran Poder” was originally released in Europe only by Spanish label: Alone Records.
This North American Southern Lord issue features one exclusive bonus track (a cover of Venoms’ classic: Genocide) not available on the original issue.
