MAEGASHIRA
THE INNER WORKINGS OF BLOCK TIME
SELF-RELEASED

New Jersey quartet Maegarshira demonstrates its sludgy side on its debut four-track doom and gloom metal frolic. From the oppressively massive opener “Planet Smasher”, this band’s intent to blend The Melvins’ plodding fury, Black Sabbath’s incarnate evil, and Venom cheeky chaos through songs like the disgustingly engaging “When the Sewers are Full the Streets Will Run with Shit” is quite evident. What’s not so apparent is how much carnage that Maegashira’s borrowed Crowbar-esque twin guitar slayings and lumbering melodies left behind by Sleep actually hauls in its wake. Diabolically domineering, THE INNER WORKINGS OF BLOCK TIME goes down as smooth as broken glass caked in mud, furthering its slow churning stoner rock aesthetic
