Paterikon – Under the Mountains
Old school doom inspired by early Sabbath and classic Trouble, the ghost stories of MR James, and arcane medieval and apocalyptic literature.
Paterikon is John Wehling.
“Having never heard of Paterikon before and just going by the artwork i was expecting something a little more brutal but was pleasantly surprised to find an album that has all the riffs you could possibly ask for but is also quite melodic and in places proggish. Favorite track: A Warning to the Curious.”
~ Frazer Jones
“Just like Thierry said, there are some truly sinister riffs in this album. Very good vocals, reminiscent of the Tony Martin era of Black Sabbath. Seriously well-written tunes, for friends of Acid Mammoth and all that is heavy and doom. I can’t help but wonder how massive this album could have sounded if it were produced in a big studio. But then again, it slays as it is. Highly recommended. Favorite track: A Warning to the Curious.” ~ Ioannis Valiakos
