I probably would've missed out on this had it not been for my subscription to magnetic eye records (you really should subscribe). This is for doom lovers, yes, but it's much more than the standard issue doom that often pushes casual listeners away. This album is emotional, heavy, and clear in its efforts to engage the listener and keep you hooked. Special shout out for the production which places the fantastic bass playing right where you can actually hear it. Highly recommended!
Favorite track: Virgin Witch.
Almost missed this like a doofus, especially given how much I enjoyed Kofuku. LowFlyingHawks' brand of dreamy (or nightmarish, depending) psychedelic doomy goodness has only gotten better.
Favorite track: Smile.
An Epic Album from an underrated Band that needs to get more attention. I was never even slightly dissapointed from Genkaku, Low Flying Hawks are pure epicness. Sit back, relax and let your mind drift away with that piece of Art.
Favorite track: Sinister Waves.

I sampled the Huntress just due to the name, I definitely won the musical lottery quick pick. What a amazing find, It has it all great lyrics and vocals, killer psychedelic sound and some doom elements tossed in for a bonus. Reminds me of Mastodon, Elder and a more psychedelic version of Khemmis. AbNormal Listening Habits
