Experimental doom metal band from UK, Camel of Doom, release their latest album on the ever-great doom label Solitude Productions, and as always, the quality is standard-setting. Unlike the expected atmospheric/funeral doom of the highest quality, for a change, Camel of Doom here play a weird but not unsettling kind of doom that's refreshing to hear - it has a spacey quality to the whole thing, a touch of vast ambiance, progressive experimentation and seamless passages stretching out into eternity. This has elements of sludge, dark ambient, a bit of stoner and even atmospheric doom. The album is a foray into the unplumbed depths of space, a unique excursion that leaves you writhing for answers, for embedded in its drawn-out histrionics are epiphanies the genre could benefit from. Camel of Doom are a revelation, a band that aren't content with merely mimicking others; they are out to change the perception, to do something beyond what is conceived to be possible, much like a trip to outer space.
