Robedoor "Rancor Keeper" (Release The Bats) 2007

Perfect album to cap off this shite week of summer rain and bad news about a local venue. One of about a dozen releases last year from Robedoor and happens to be one of their finest and most unique. Inside this four track behemoth lay dark grey earth-enveloping doom clouds that shroud the listener in a black blanket of dread. Unlike most of their slowly unfurling drone releases, Rancor Keeper is a much doomier, stomping affair, dragging the listener to the top of blackest mountains only to drop them off the peak and beginning the process again. Get under a blanky and let the dread begin.
