Canned, scrapped, rewritten and rerecord numerous times over an obsessive two-year period, the threateningly lyrical and brutally heavy compositions of Caged In Flesh embody Horsehunter's perverse and maniacal precision as a band. It's an album forged in iron and cleansed by fire. Sinister, brooding and heavy enough to weight the earth in place and stop it spinning wildly off it's axis. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia Horsehunter's debut album is set to become something of a new and thrilling masterwork of the genre. Powered by the darkest, most gut-wrenching riffs imaginable and fueled in full by psychedelic and atmospheric doom. Following on from the ground-shaking premiere of the 16-minute epic 'Stoned to Death' toward the dend of 2014 via Decibel Magazine, Horsehunter has already drawn comparisons with the likes of YOB, Neurosis and Shrinebuilder. Yet alongside the brutal vocal chord rips and vicious guitar throw downs of the album's heavier moments, surrounded by darkness they still manage to enfold themselves in light. From the gently creeping 'Nightfall' to the dynamic and progressive passages of 'Witchery' the four tracks on offer here showcase the talents of a young band with an arsenal of understanding. "Appropriately enough, the main riff ['Stoned to Death'] sounds like an evil version of the one from Led Zeppelin's 'Dazed and Confused', which is arguable the first-ever doom metal jam." (MetalSucks) Having shared stages with High on Fire, Conan, Windhand and Sleep and harvested fans from all four corners of the globe, newly signed to NY based label Magnetic Eye Records, Horsehunter are primed and ready to breach the Southern Hemisphere and take the world on full tilt.
