Dead Sun Worship is yr traditional heavy sack of doom, the first record from Dublin’s Venus Sleeps. A touch of Ozzy Osbourne enters into the vocals, lending the whole affair a classic feel. The name of the record label, Heavy Earth Records, sets up a nice triumvirate of planets and stars too. 300 copies on orange vinyl.

6/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 28 October 2015

Irish psych-doomsters Venus Sleeps hit us with their debut on the appropriately titled Heavy Earth Records. It's a pretty straight forward space rock affair with a melodic vocal drawl reminiscent of Ozzy Osbourne via Page Hamilton set to monolithic, almost infinite riffs that cop as much from Black Sabbath as they do the Southern Lord back-catalog, Hawkwind and the likes of neo-metallers Electric Wizard. Opener "Ether Sleeper" sets the tone which rarely varies over it's five track duration. The majority of tracks exceed the seven minute mark and mine their territory deep, leaving no stone unturned, exhausting a riff until it can bark no more. 

So yeah, not the most original outing but certainly in no way offensive, especially if you enjoy repetition on an epic scale that plods at pretty much the same tempo for it's entire duration. The surprise, and only real rest bite from the infinite cosmos of riffage is the decision to include a cover of Syd Barrett's "Golden Hair" from "Madcap Laughs" which they do considerable justice too whilst slowing it down enough to add a couple of minutes to it's duration. Lads are taking it steady.

Note; it's weird that a lot of metal records are mixed and mastered so quiet. You'll wanna turn this one up loud.
