From the second the first notes erupt, the SINISTER HAZE Demo will thrust you backwards in time to the era of BLUE CHEER, BLACK SABBATH and SIR LORD BALTIMORE. These legendary bands have their influences felt throughout SINISTER HAZE's music, but by no means do the Richmond, VA three-piece attempt to mimic the masters; rather, they inject the elements of old into a modern, psychedelically-influenced style of doom that is unmatched among today's sounds.
From the Hendrix-influenced guitar intro of "Changin' Ways" to the analog worship of "Black Shapeless Demon" to the off-kilter guitar mastery of "Betrayed by Time" SINISTER HAZE provide over 20 minutes of exceptionally crafted tone. Their Demo will infect the soul, filling it with emotive and creative heaviness that packs energy, psychedelia, and Lovecraftian imagery. Recorded with traditional analog methods in mind, the SINISTER HAZE Demo delivers...
