Lycus are a California gang, producing stately doom metal that weighs heavy on the soul. As well as the usual ingredients, a cello sometimes rasps through the sound field: furthermore, the vocals are sometimes clean and sometimes howling. Good to have variety eh? Chasms has 4 long tracks, and is released on Relapse.

Listening to Lycus is like descending into the abyss of a pitch black cavern with only a lone candle to light the way. What horrors await just beyond the flickering light? Did you just see movement out of the corner of your eye, or was it only the shadows dancing across the walls? If you make it out, will you ever be the same? Ideally, Chasms should be heard at home in a darkened room on a nice stereo or preferably even on headphones. This isn't an album for cruising around town; it deserves a focused listen. Hold the artwork in your hands as you listen, and concentrate on the atmosphere the whole package generates.
