|I honestly didn't know what to make off this disc when I first got it back in '02. Sixty Watt Shaman don't play your average, garden-variety stoner metal.

The vocals are scratchy, even more so than on Seed Of Decades, which may put people off at first, but there's actually a lot of melody going on behind the rasp. Guitars are fuzzy and effects-laden, only occasionally sticking to simple power chords.
