Shrinebuilder - s/t 2xLP

Here it is. Shrinebuilder's self-titled debut album is available for pre-order from Insound. Check out the first track of their album on their myspace and get with the program. Not genius, but it does actually sound like a solid mix of the members' main bands and it definitely makes me long for more.

Insound comments: "not so much a band name as a statement of intent. Not a one-off suopergroup, but rather the first chapter in what promises to be an epic narrative. More to the point, though - Shrinebuilder is the meeting of musical monoliths, the Justice League of underground heaviness: Scott "Wino" Weinrich of Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, and The Hidden Hand on guitar: Al Cisneros of Om and Sleep on bass; Dale Crover of Melvins and Altamont on drums; Scott Kelly of Neurosis on guitar. And all four of them on vocals. With these four living legends in the room, the term "highly anticipated" doesn't even come close.

Recorded in just three days, a sufficiently superhuman time-frame for a group of musicians who often pass for superhuman themselves in certain circles, Shrinebuilder delivers on the tacit promise of a riff-roaring Winow+Neurosis+Om+Melvins power-psych explosion, but it also delivers a sum that no one could have anticipated. You'll just have to listen to find out!"
