The Divine Right Of Kings (CD)
UK Doom n' Rollers Groan impressed with their 2010 release The Sleeping Wizard and are back with new full length Divine Right of Kings. After even the most cursory listen, it's apparent that this release is a lot more cohesive than their previous output; this sounds like an album, rather than a bunch of disparate tracks that happen to have been stuck on a CD together. Musically, it's still the same old Groan. That is to say the kind of doom that borrows heavily from classic rock, while still being recognisably doom (interestingly, the classic rock aspect is less exclusively focused on grim Sabbath venerating dirges, and unusually for a doom band contains plenty of Zeppelinesque bounce), but things have undergone something of a refinement. The songwriting is leaner and more concise than before, and the hooks are stronger, the band favouring a verse/chorus template with the occasional atmospheric aside or structural foray, but never allowing the music to meander or stray too far from the song itself; even the title track, which clocks in at eight minutes feels like it needs every riff it has.
