The new HUATA-album is doubtless not a funny thing. The mix of Doom, Sludge and Psychedelic requires patience. No use for easy listening.
“Atavist of Mann” surprises with a calm beginning but immediately rushes into a heavy piece of bulkiness. Who is used to listen to bands like ELECTRIC WIZARD will be happy with HUATA. And HUATA knows for sure how to write a damn good Doom-Track. Just listen to 'Operation Mistletoe' or the evil 'Fall of the 4th' and you will get it. Both songs catch you and challenge you as well. Sometimes HUATA want too much and dissipate their energies which ends in a lost red thread. But in general the album is really, really good. Provided that you have a weakness for exhausting music that uncovers its secrets slowly.
