OBESE – Kali Yuga
An appropriate name for such a hefty sound, Obese on this album "Kali Yuga" serve up 9 thick pieces of sludge-oriented stoner metal. Expect a bass that rattles rib cages and bones, an equally throaty vocal attack, and a sound that contains a lot of Crowbar / Red Fang qualities, with a touch of High on Fire in there for good measure. Honing in on bottom end grooves and swinging, 70’s retro tempos, favorites differ depending on the day – currently the jamming title cut and semi-funky "Red as the Sun" hit home best, although the 9 minute plus closer "Begetter Dead Letter" is a doom tour de force.
Dutch stoner metal never sounded so sweet.
