Dozethrone – The Mask Of Red Death – Album Review

Settle in....

Dozethrone take a riff and wring the life out of it (for 15 mins per song). So, if you relish having your head caved in by relentless doomy riffs and precious little variation then The Mask Of Red Death is for you.

There’s no vocals. Just riffs. The same riff. All fuzzed up and nowhere to go. In fact, it’s enough to send you into a deep, riff-induced slumber and that, we would wager, is the whole damn point. 

With 8 albums released over the last 2 years these guys sure do love to churn ’em out and, arguably, their prolific work rate is to the detriment of a little more nuance but if incessant, stoner riffs – driven home to the point of almost discomfort – are your bag, then Dozethrone‘s latest should be on your shopping list.

Neither agreeable nor disagreeable, The Mask Of Red Death exists to sweep you into an almost zombie-fied state. It ain’t exactly fun (not in the purest sense of the word) – nor particularly memorable – but if you let Dozethrone’s soporific sounds whisk you away at least you’ll benefit from a refreshing nap! 6/10  

Dozethrone’s The Mask Of Red Death was released independently on April 24th, 2022.
