Crypt Sermon – Out of the Garden

a3045949469_10  When you think of innovative, badass doom metal you have that select group of badasses right there if you love that genre, correct? Well, prepare to add another band to that list because this album is a f**king masterpiece and that’s just putting it mildly. “Out o the Garden” from Philadelphia up and coming doom metallers Crypt Sermon is an absolute beautiful album front to back all the way from its musicianship to the wondrously beautiful cover art to the vocals, which at one point sound like a not too bad impression of Ozzy Ozbourne – just in one song so don’t lose your s**t – so that’s a plus, and the guitars and drums alone are beautifully crafted to make this purely amazing sound to them that sent a literal chill down my spine for the whole album. And here’s another thing that made me flip s**t: this is Crypt Sermon’s debut album. Are you f**king kidding?! Never in my life have I heard a more flawless debut from a band that shows so much promise when it comes down to future albums that will no doubt be fantabulous (fantastic + fabulous). Just thinking about it blows my mind because Crypt Sermon has set the bar in terms of quality and awesome sound that is no doubt the result of many hours of fine tuning and making sure that everything is perfect and it is. I cannot recommend this album enough because I can already say with certainty that “Out of the Garden” is one of the best albums of 2015, for myself at least, and is definitely going to cause many disturbances in the metal kingdom which will surely give it the attention that it deserves.
