Check out this write-up of Japanese duo Blacklab’s newest track:
“It’s 2022 and Blacklab are back. The self-styled ‘Dark witch doom duo from Osaka, Japan’ are set to drop their third album in the Summer and we can categorically say that it is a veritable beast of a record. More on that to come though.
In the meantime ahead of their first appearance outside of Japan at London’s Desertfest. The band has released a new single which is a little taster for the sonic mayhem to come on album 3.
‘Abyss Woods’ has all the trademark Blacklab sounds, furious fuzzed-up riffs, rolling thunder drums, and vocals slipping seamlessly from melodic to full-on throat shred. Heavy stoner doom as only the Japanese can do. Add to that a newfound assurance in the studio, with production by Jun Morino and mix by Wayne Adams (Big Lad, Green Lung, John, Cold In Berlin) and you have a potent indication of what’s to come. In fact album 3 ramps things up even further we can assure you.
If you are in London post-Desertfest, the band will be playing their only other gig in Europe on Monday 2nd May at the Victoria in Dalston.” Info on the show HERE.
