"After "Supreme" on Utech and past works on Southern Lord and Alone, the Spanish doom metal band Orthodox are back with another instrumental/improvisational work and with the additional member Achilleas Pò on saxophone. The 27-minute improvisational suite "Κρέας" is a black hole of distortions and free tempos that is reminiscent of The Blue Humans, Rudolph Grey's "Mask Of Light", Klangmutationen's "Liturgie" on Dreamsheep Records, John Coltrane's "The Olatunji Concert" or "Ascension". Achilleas Pò's sax is a magma of inharmonic and squealing tones, while Borja Díaz & Marco Serrato (drums & bass section) are locked together and painting pure free-jazz full of rage in the vein of Milford Graves or Ornette Coleman's "Free Jazz" double LP. Behind the huge wall of disembodied doom riffs, there's still enough logic and subterannean metal vibes that will slowly surface after repeated listening. One thing is for sure: Orthodox takes no prisoners and you will approve this with the sign of the horns. Mastered by Valerio Cosi, artwork made by Achilleas Pò and Dreamsheep Records over an historic image by Zakarīyā ibn Muḥammad al-Qazwīnī (‘Ajā’ib al-makhlūqāt wa-gharā’ib al-mawjūdāt - Marvels of Things Created and Miraculous Aspects of Things Existing)."

about

Orthodox Sevilla, Spain

Orthodox is a duo from Seville, Spain playing experimental doom metal inspired by religious folklore and jazz. A music based on hypnotic repetitions of quasi-mystical
intensity and slow, torpid rhythms befitting people from a city of crushing summer heat. Musical influences from Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd or Melvins mixed with their peculiar perception of Southern Spain folklore and avantgarde.
