Wxmaggot 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.

Colin M. 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.

ACJ These guys are slowly becoming my favourite band.
Genkaku is dirty and raw, at times dark with heavy lyrical content - but also beautiful and uplifting.

Great guitarwork throughout from thick fuzzy walls of sound to cool bluesy licks and leads.

A masterpiece by true musicians - thanks!

Can’t wait for the EP(?) and last album in trilogy


Favorite track: Uncool.

witchhunter666 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.

about

Second album of bleak, spacious, heavy drone-doom featuring Dale Crover (Melvins) and Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle). Guest vox by Buzz Osborne (Melvins).

"Heavy without being oppressive, challenging without making demands. Sit back, close your eyes, and let it overwhelm your senses." - Noisey

"A thinker’s metal band, opting to darkly soothe rather than ferociously shred." - Consequence of Sound
