Lumbar is the brainchild of one Aaron Edge, who despite being recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis has marched on with this new project regardless; one of misanthropic doom. He’s joined by Mike Sheidt from Yob and Vhöl and Tad Doyle (Tad, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth). Hulking riffs and possessed vocals rule the roost, first with an old school doom metal riff that gives way to seething, spat out vocals. This is sets the scene nicely for ‘Day Two’, a misanthropic pile of sludgy doom, drenched in reverb, that instantly recalls a taste of Burning Witch. When you consider the expansive doom leanings of say Yob, it’s interesting to hear a band like this compacted into such a succinct running time.
The group was formed earlier this year, and they are already ready with their debut album The First And Last Days Of Unwelcome, which is scheduled for release on November 26. The band members' backgrond in sludge and doom metal is reflected in the music on the album which is crushingly heavy and, frankly, a very unpleasant listen. This is obviously the trio's intention. The tracks on the album are entrancingly heavy and darkly psychedelic, but at the same time they are challenging, intense, and unsettling.
