Peter Rabbit Your body may be in bed, shivering and drenched in cold sweat, but your mind is far, far away, in a surrealist hellscape made up by our collective consciousness, where all souls go to die after going through a reverse Samsara of sorts, getting filthier and filthier as millennia pass by. Highly recommended for fans of dirty, spacey sludge.

Staying under the radar, Drug Honkey has been releasing its brew of experimental doom/death since the early ’00s, putting out records independently, until 2012’s Ghost In The Fire was released by Diabolical Conquest Records. Today, they are trying to escape obscurity releasing their newest album, Cloak of Skies, through Transcending Obscurity (no pun intended) records. At first listen, Cloak of Skies appears like a sludge record. Its pace is slow, the riffs are filled with layers of dirt and a gritty sense of purpose

Cloak of Skies' is a journey into damnation by way of self-destruction. The album is slow and dingy with growling vocals, psychedelic moments, and loud gravely guitar rhythms while leads scream in and out of each song in a kaleidoscope of synapses showering in endorphins. There is such a large swath of atmosphere and so much open delirious space that this band would probably not work well in a live setting, but on a recording comes across as addled and hopeless as hitting rock bottom, curled in a corner of a strange basement and fading away into nothingness.

Cloak Of Skies is exactly that kind of record. Ostensibly a sludge metal band, Drug Honkey have conceived and constructed a vivid and terrifying sonic world here, wherein festering sub-bass frequencies and tortured synths underpin a sustained onslaught of snail’s pace hypno-doom. At times it’s like listening to Cop-era Swans reimagined by the Butthole Surfers at their lysergic peak, at others it’s like some unholy mash-up of Hellhammer and Scorn’s Vae Solis  . Concluding with a Justin Broadrick remix of album opener Pool Of Failure, this is a staggering, unmissable triumph for bong-battered disorientation and psychedelic heft. Metal Hammer Newsletter.

What Drug Honkey do is manufacture atmosphere - blasted, burned, and black. They suck all the air out of the room and fill the void with a psychoactive fog that’s the stuff of nightmares. They make the sound of a gutted city whose lifeless buildings are crumbling, imploding, and burning like giant waste bins beneath the bridges of catastrophe. It’s the noise of giant earth movers digging mass graves. It’s the soundtrack to the sun burning out and the planet freezing in utter darkness. It’s a recording of demons convulsed in the throes of insanit. .
