Lesbian - Power Hor Review

by Billy Gamble

Hailing from Seattle, Washington, Lesbian delivers a personal brand of psychedelic/progressive metal. Each of the four tracks on their debut album Power Hor are long-winded and just an assault after assault of bend-over backwards guitar work, progressive drums, and scratchy blackened metal buzzsaws. Lesbian mixes essences of doom, progressive, and black metal creating a sound that may possibly be all their own.

The first track on the album "Black Forest Hamm" opens with lead guitarist Arran McInnis shredding with finger-tapping solo. The song goes to a moderately modern Darkest Hour sound to end up with a slow-soft Opeth meets Between the Buried and Me solo. This transitions quite nicely and also happens again on "Powerhorses" and "Irreversible". On "Powerhorses" Lesbian start with an upbeat soft progressive song to end up with a My Dying Bride (during there Turn Loose the Swans era) meets Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. The doom riff seems to have problems resolving though. It sounds like it might multiple times towards the end, misleading the listener and it gets mildly repetitive after a few times.

Although it is a bit difficult to listen to 25-minute songs that constantly transition sound back and forth, Lesbian is surely a band to watch. The sound quality isn't as good as it could be, but the progressive songs are epic and great to listen to. Power Hor is akin to an experience that is too difficult to really hit the nail on the head with words.
