After years of delay, the third and final album by Snowblood is finally upon us! The Glasgow quartet were one of the best UK bands of recent times, with legendary live performances and two class albums (Being And Becoming and The Human Tragedy) under their belt. This third (untitled) album brings four (similarly untitled) songs in an hour, and is an out-and-out epic magnum opus that puts all this piffling newjack post-metal currently clogging the airwaves in the shade. Masters of the lyrical build-up, the tension builds organically, flowing inexorably towards utterly crushing doom passages time and time again. If you need further proof of their worth, John Peel played them on his show a good few times, and invited them to do a session for his annual Burns Night special of Scottish bands. This album was produced by the band themselves in the isolated Scottish highlands. The beautifully detailed and elegant artwork was done by Glyn at Scrawled. The CD, pressed at Dual Plover, is limited to 500, with chipboard sleeves printed at Stumptown, and it turned out great. Its been designed to resemble a mini-gatefold so there is coherence between both formats.
