artworkThe Gore-Gons employ genuine surf as a vehicle for their graveyard vocals, and the effect is superb. As a bonus, there are some dark and sludgy surf instros here too.
Picks: Torpedo, The Prowler

Track by Track Review


Torpedo dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Great trembling tremolo and surf whammy chords present liquid uneasiness by contrasting lurking danger with gently rolling seas. While "Torpedo" is very simple AABA stuff, it's also very cool. Glissandos, sonar pings, and tribal tom toms.

The Prowler dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Boy does this move slowly, like a lumbering lurker about to overtake you. Liquidy and reverby, shimmering with dangerous tremolo and low brow progressions. "The Prowler" is just so sludgy!
