steve Holy,holy fuck.
Hawkeyes unleash a shattered,shimmering avalanche of incandescent noise that vaults the blood-brain barrier to ravish the incapacitated synapses.
Scintillating guitar and keyboard squall vie for attention in the 360 degree aural miasma,with the lead-heavy bass/drum fulcrum supplying essential gravity to this stratosphere-bound,tryptamine psychosis soundscape.
Truly a fried mind is a freed mind,though that didn't help Phil Spector.Incidentally THIS is a wall of sound.

Christopher Fertnig I'm not a doom-metal sludge type of guy so I should not like Hawkeyes much, if at all. However, I love this album. Its highly cinematic to me like a movie score - and no not a horror movie, maybe a biker movie. The writing is really fresh and the musicianship is par excellence. It's a very easy listen for any hard rock, old school metal aficionado. The recording itself is a masterpiece with great separation and articulation between the six players. Highly recommended. *****/***** Favorite track: March Of The Elephants.

Steve Rodger Hawkeyes make a most enjoyable noise which they describe as chaotic psychedelic space doom which just about ticks all my boxes....... Favorite track: March Of The Elephants.

Hawkeyes is an amazingly heavy, atmospheric stoner/doom six piece from Ontario Canada that will blow your mind with crushing, monolithic riffs and dark, beckoning psych grooves. Poison Slows You Down is a mindbending ride of icy doom and madness.
