Lord Vicar - Signs of Osiris

FINALLY, the mighty Finnish riff merchants Lord Vicar brings us another searing slab of trad-doom!!! It's been 2+ years since their last outing, but did they ever make up for lost time!!

Signs of Osiris, the quartet's 2nd full-length,  is a pretty solid effort, retaining much of the debut's groove and sonic seamlessness. It's a little more yielding than Fear No Pain, yet packed full of nice time changes, crescendos, and mid-track climaxes. The overall tone of the record is less "woe is me" and a little more "whoa!!"

Definitely a good listen for all the traditional doom fanatics in your life.
