Drug Honkey (US) - Ghost in the Fire CD (Mind-warping Doom Metal, Diabolical Conquest)

Image

Drug Honkey is a mind-altering drug that has its effect for days. Its hallucinogenic properties create disturbing changes in your thought patterns. Ghost in the Fire is the culmination of various experiments conducted in the sound room. It is a drug that is to be consumed one song at a time, each one exhibiting a different side-effect. From within the pitch black darkness, haunting images are projected from the buried subconscious to the cold inescapable reality. Floating musical apparitions drift seamlessly through periods of undetermined time, plodding suspenseful momentum and shrieking echoes of possessed souls colour this out-of-mind experience blood red.

"Not a song on this fucking album will fail to envelop you in mournful tatters, like some dopamine ragman coming to lay claim to your soul, and it's hands down one of the most compelling and simultaneously repellant arguments for human extinction you are likely to have all year, a masterful monolith of suffering and spiritual debilitation." - From the Dust Returned

"The band certainly wastes no time in unleashing their demented form of death/doom metal onto and punishing the listener’s ears as heavily distorted, crushing riffs hit the listener right from the beginning" - Heavy Metal Tribune

"Drug Honkey might be onto a new sub genre of metal. While stoner metal typically has a fuzzed out, harmless red eyed dopey vibe, Drug Honkey‘s heroin addicted hues are a far more dangerous, Bradycardia and Psoriasis inducing form of metal that reeks of ammonia, feces paranoia." - Teeth of the Divine
http://www.teethofthedivine.com/reviews ... -the-fire/


"Just like the proverbial bad pennies, those twisted perverts of sound Drug Honkey have returned to ruin everything and everyone, only this time around they are far sicker than ever before"- The Sleeping Shaman
http://www.thesleepingshaman.com/review ... d-dl-2012/


"It's droning, dissonant, diabolical, doomed-out psychedelia dripping with LSD and blood; the word "trippy" won't quite suffice for what these guys have done this time around." - Metal Storm

Thanks very much Chris! The band obviously appreciates it, have no doubts about it! We all do! I love your vivid and personal description about the music. I try to do the same in my reviews, but they are not as real as yours! Thank you again! :D

"These sludgy beasts all stay under the six-minute mark with a compositional focus that most doom, psych, and sludge bands could take a few cues from." - Maelstrom Webzine

"Drug Honkey's own inferno is more organic, it is very human, it wears very tangible wounds, open scars that invite the listener to a chaotic voyage into the human psyche. The machines are mere vehicles, means to enhance the paranoia, the fundamental unrest that lies in the heart of the music." - Doom-Metal.com
http://www.doom-metal.com/reviews.php?album=2318


"Between the un-riffs and the dirty, dubby bass blurbles, effected drum loops and ambient samples float eerily atop live drumbeats, adding a certain creepiness to the agony. Vocalist Honkey Head sputters, groans, and growls, his performance the most distinctive, disturbing, and disturbed aspect of the otherwise fairly straightfoward funereal semi-industrial noise-doom approach." - Last Rites
