Custom Black Smoke Shall Rise Review




There are times in a bloggers life when he think he’s got everything mapped out, he sets out a plan on what album/EP he’s gonna review next, the one after that and so on, smug in the knowledge that he’s got everything covered…. then along comes an album/EP so good all those plans go up in smoke and he knows
this album has to be reviewed right here, right now!
Custom Black’s debut ”
Smoke Shall Rise” is one such album!

Coming from somewhere between the proto-doom of
UK‘s
Black Sabbath and the stonerized classic hard rock of
Sweden‘s
Spiritual Beggars ,with a touch of
Grand Magus style heavy metal thrown in for good measure, ”
Smoke Shall Rise” is an album that’ll unite stoners, doomsters and metalheads together under one banner.
Custom Black,
Josh Acosta (guitar/vocals),
Glenn Hall (bass) and
Brian Burchfield (drums), create a sound and groove gritty enough for those that like their music a little dirty and fuzzy but one that is also grim and gnarly enough to please those with a penchant for the darker side. From the opening bars of first track ”
She Rides” the listener is taken on a roller-coaster ride of crunching guitar riffage, scorching solo’s, grizzly bassitude and pulverising percussion coated in strong powerful clean vocal tones, that dips and rises through a variety of tempo’s and dynamics before reaching its final destination on the deliciously metallic, totally essential grooves of title and closing track ”
Smoke Shall Rise“.

If you like your music a touch gritty, a touch doomy and a whole lot metallic with a groove deeper than the
Mariana Trench then ”
Smoke Shall Rise” is an album you just
must check out……
