Indian - Guiltless

Review by Aaron Sullivan.


Hailing from the great city of Chicago is the band Indian. Their brand of DOOM is brutal and no non-sense.

I first became aware of this band when they opened for High on Fire. I had no idea what they sounded like. But when they began to play it was immediate that they were not messing around. The riffs are crushingly heavy and at times droning. Drumming that is tribal and hypnotizing.

With a Black Metal style vocal that sounds as though it is coming from a madman(and having seen them live believe me it is). At times they have a real Khanate/Burning Witch feel to them. The album is filled with elements of DOOM, Drone, and Sludge. The band has in it's ranks members of Lord Mantis and Nachtmystium.

Intense, brutal, harsh, crushing, heavy, torturous, ugly, and in your face. All these adjectives fit for this album.
