GRANDLORD HIGHMASTER: Self-titled: 2 x LP

May 31, 2017

Three dudes playing sludge metal. Sounds like they went to college, listened to too much Mastodon, and decided to start a band. The album has a lot of polish and technical ability. It also has boring folk instrumentals and a vanilla tone. Sonically, I couldn’t distinguish this from another record of a similar vintage just by sound. It’s a pretty bland record to come stocked on a 180 gram gatefold double LP. I don’t blame the band; if I had made this I would be proud of it too. The music is proficient, but I’m left feeling cold at the end of the day. –Bryan Static (Kill All Music, killallmusic.storeenvy.com)
