Synopsis

Album Description
2009 release. It's not so much a band name as a statement of intent. Not a one-off supergroup, but rather the first chapter in what promises to be an epic narrative. More to the point, though--Shrinebuilder is the meeting of musical monoliths, the Justice League of underground heaviness: Scott "Wino" Weinrich of Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, and The Hidden Hand on guitar; Al Cisneros of Om and Sleep on bass; Dale Crover of Melvins and Altamont on drums; Scott Kelly of Neurosis on guitar. And all four of them on vocals. With these four living legends in the room, the term "highly anticipated" doesn't even come close.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am not a religious person...but listening to this record makes it clear that a higher plane exists.

The truth has been found...in the RIFF...this is nothing less than THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT, and I feel blessed.

Fellow disciples of the RIFF, please kneel, for the Holy Ones hath arrived...SHRINEBUILDER is their message."

"Al, Scott, Wino, Dale = SHRINEBUILDER

This is a great album, by a line up of veteran musicians. Fire and brimstone, heavy, dark, psychedelic, bluesy doom. If your into this type of music I'm sure you will enjoy this album. If your not into this type of music you probably should be ; )"
Cannot recommend highly enough

"Blimey, this year has been a corker for rawk - the progressive vibes of Mastodon's "Crack the Skye", the shifting sands of Sunn O))) "Monoliths and Dimensions", the expansive beauty of Mono's "Hymn to the Immortal Wind", the tribal psychadelia of Minsk's "With Echoes in the Movement of Stone", the sublime dark majesty of Wolves in the Throne Room's "Black Cascade", the claustophobic yet expansive layers of Nadja/Black Boned Angel's self-titled offering, the ethereal indo-stoner fusion of OM's "God is Good" and the driven hypnotic madness of Zu's "Carboniferous", to name but a few.

The past two weeks have delivered two further gems: A Storm Of Light's "Forgive Us Our Trespasses" and then Shrinebuilder!

What can I say about the Shrinebuilder album? Although it is early days, and I am in danger of getting carried away, this could just be one of the definitive post-Sabbath albums. My, my, is it good. If you are here looking at this review, don't hesitate: get it. I am confident you will not regret it. If any negative reviews appear, I will eat my beard."
