" ...'giant wall of impending doom' only with a much, fuzzier tone rather than guitar distortion. Slow, plodding riffs of fuzzy doomy goodness, but with enough changes so that nothing becomes too repetitive ... I'll just sum up to say that some of the best undiscovered bands out there seem to be coming from that somewhat undefinable 'doom/fuzz' or 'garage doom' sound. It's becoming its own legitimate genre, ever bit as valid as any other, and Elephant Tree is a great example of the genre. While I do use a couple of references to Black Sabbath, it's only for those not familiar with the sound. You may not know Pentagram, or Count Raven, or Uncle Acid, but you've probably heard of Sabbath. Elephant Tree is a must if you like that sound ... The songwriting is solid and creative, and keeps one's interest all the way. Highly recommended for any fans of doom, stoner rock or fuzz and for the three fans of Astroqueen's 'Into Submission' that will read this."
