Huata - Atavist Of Mann (2012)

I guess this serves as the marker for the end of the Sabbath worship era, and the commencement of a generation of bands whose main influence is Electric Wizard. Huata is a witch hunting stoner doom group from the plains of Celtic Brittany aka France. Atavist Of Mann is the band's debut: a combination of 70s occult horror film haze and Come My Fanatics... hum in an attempt to quell the hunger that Black Masses failed to satiate. The Hammond organ is a nice touch, but I wish the drums weren't so clean. Overall a recommended listen for anyone looking to get immersed in Satanic rituals and mystical mushroom eating.

  1. I'm glad someone else notices Wizard's decline as of late.
