Big Fish is the new album from Greek Sludge/Stoner Rockers – Sadhus, The Smoking Community and it’s a constantly heavy and boisterous affair. The album is a heavy mix of Doom, Sludge and Stoner Metal that sounds fantastic and pissed off as hell. However the band sometimes struggle with the different elements of music included here on the album.

Sadhus, The Smoking Community impress most on the more epic songs such as Lazarus, Big Fish and I.P.S. (Intelligent Psycho Sludge). As they have more time to create and expand their NOLA influenced sound. The hardcore and almost death based growls takes some time getting used to but Stavros will soon win you round. The whole tone and atmosphere of the album is very raw but that allows Sadhus, The Smoking Community to play a more bleaker and atmospheric style of Sludge/Stoner Metal.

Overall, Sadhus, The Smoking Community have created a winning album after 4 years since their last album. Big Fish is loud and violent Sludge/Stoner Metal that stays bleak throughout it’s 35 minute running time. So don’t go expecting any uplifting moments of Hard Rock/Heavy Metal as this isn’t Sadhus, The Smoking Community style.

Approach this album with CAUTION. As this album will FUCK UP YOUR ENTIRE DAY with it’s bleak themes and brutal epic sounds…

Excellent and Highly Recommended.

    I perform my Rituals only at night between the hours of 0.00 - 0.59 (South African time) lasting 1 hour but of course, this depends on the nature of the ritual, some rituals might take hours and can also become necessary to be performed at specials places like; flowing streams, cemeteries and other places dictated by the gods.
    I do not want anyone to be under any illusions about my spells and its numerous rituals. Real and effective Voodoo is no child's play, it is expensive because, after the rituals, I will have to destroy all the materials involved by fire and the ashes scattered over a flowing stream or river.
