From Beyond – One Year [EP]

If you spend most of your time surfing stoner-related Facebook pages, From Beyond’s music is probably familiar to you.

A self-proclaimed “space-doom metal” band from Houston, Texas, the occult-tinged four-piece leans heavily upon the conventional gestures of this genre: From the swirling, groovier-than-thou artwork – which would make a great t-shirt design, by the way – to the prototypical chug of ‘Evil (From Beyond)’ One Year recharges the vintage sounds of Black Sabbath, Bedemon and Witchfinder General with blurry-eyed enthusiasm.
