DAGGER MOON: Citadel: LP

There are so many categories of metal; there should be one for bands using doom riffs well. Doom is the new lazy. But Dagger Moon play above average drone with the added dimensions of a John Carpenter-inspired keyboard raising sails in the windstorm, a great bass sound, and some tasteful instrumental accoutrement. Neurosis comes to mind as a reference point. I’ve always found Neurosis a little above category. I enjoy Neurosis and I don’t often like things like Neurosis. But I like this. So take all that into account. But if you’re looking for something like this, you should get this instead. –Billups Allen (citadel666.bandcamp.com)
