Ready To Fight...

Quallus - Demo (2015)


Making their demo debut with a single ~20-minute track divided into two parts, this German group plays in the realm of the slow and heavy, adding a sludgy vocal twist to the usual bass-loving doom recipe.  Stir in a few psychedelic swirls from the guitarist, strong drum presence and variety, and a skill with making the lengthy sections flow together, and it's pretty impressive stuff for the work of just one day's recording.
Finding out what direction the band will take with subsequent releases is tempting, but right now it's nice to just enjoy their music as it stands without too much structuring to hamper their outpouring of riffs and throbbing bass-lines.  Keep your ears peeled for further work from these guys, as whether it's another demo or the jump to an EP, they've got considerable potential ready to be refined.
