Plastic Gods: Plastic Gods

Words by

Published September 7, 2011

Can somebody please FOR THE LOVE OF GOD enable it so that the next Plastic Gods release has a good producer and a decent recording budget? We’ve all experienced the brilliance of their live show, and they have the ability and potential to produce THE immense doom metal album that would make Neurosis crap blocks of solid fear.
Their latest release is a case in point. Containing their earliest compositions, ‘Plastic Gods’ is certainly a hard and undauntingly HEAVY album, with tracks like ‘Zero Tolerance’ seeped in great pools of sludge, with grinding guitars and bass buzzing aural dirt all over its workings. All the while, singer Ingó growls through the record like a bear in heat.
But the album gives the impression of treading water as they reach the limits of their current position, both in their music and recording resources. ‘Heiðar’ does give signs of a new direction, with the band playing with varying tones and texture along the lines of Jesu.
They’ve come this far on their own merit and you sense the next stage in the Plastic Gods story is going to be something truly awesome and terrifying and I for one will revel in it, as well you should too.
