1 - ORODRUIN - EPICUREAN MASS - (LP) 
CRUZ DEL SUR


Orodruins 2003 Epicurean Mass debut was a harbinger ofthings to come. So formidable that it took the band 16 years torelease its Ruins of Eternity follow-up, Epicurean Mass pavedthe way for a resurgence in mournful, riff-laden Black Sabbathand Saint Vitus-styled doom. Doom was taken back to its earnest, dark roots, casting aside the occasional pomp andimage-first angle that was emanating across the ocean. Eighteenyears after its release, Epicurean Mass is finally getting thevinyl treatment as part of a benefit for stricken Solstice guitarist Rich Walker.Recorded at The Space Recording Studio in Ontario, New York from May to June 2002, the original Orodruin lineup - Mike Puleo (vocals/bass), Mike Waske (drums), John Gallo (guitar/organ) and Nick Tydelski (guitar) - createdeight weathered, churning, ultra-heavy songs that brimmed with atmosphere. In an ode to Epicurean Masss many memorable song titles, Gallo remembers the album as being "pierced together by cruel winds of war cries and peasants laments, as the mounting feast erupted, we paid our dues to the lords of doom and are forever grateful for the wisdom we gained!" The experience, as Gallo recalls nearly 20 years after the fact, was also "magical and new."Epicurean Mass fast-tracked Orodruin onto the global doom scene. The albums original February 7, 2003 release onPsycheDOOMelic Records was followed by the bands live debut at their own Born Too Late festival that also featured the likes of Penance, Revelation, While Heaven Wept, Pale Divine, The Gates of Slumber, Unearthly Trance and Soulpreacher. A United States tour with The Prophecy and Mourning Beloveth followed, and, in 2004, Orodruin made their first European trek in support of Penance.The vinyl re-release of Epicurean Mass holds a special distinction for Gallo and his bandmates. Rich Walker was oneof the bands staunchest supporters - going out of his way to name-drop Orodruin whenever he could. This is a verylimited re-release - doom-mongers old and new would be wise to not let this one slip by!
