Album Review: Drowning Horse - Sheltering Sky

20 October 2015 | 3:38 pm | Christopher H James

"Drowning Horse have evolved into a more complex animal"

Surely the heaviest band in Australia, as attested to by Perthlings fortunate enough to have their eardrums smashed and organs turned to paté at their rare but infamous gigs, Drowning Horse have evolved into a more complex animal.

Sheltering Sky is thick with plutonium-heavy riffs but also features quieter, subtly unsettling passages such as the ghoulish slo-mo dirge of Echoes which breaks perceptions as to how much one chord can achieve. Drowning Horse have the basic power of the universe at their fingertips.
