ESTONIANS HEAVIEST DUO "TALBOT" RETURN TO AUSTRALIA in 2020
TALBOT, the heaviest Stoner Doom Duo on earth is set to tour Australia in July/August 2020.
The Estonian based riff crushers have been pummeling audiences since 2008 with their Noisy Atmospheric Psychedelia, winning several awards with "Scaled" and "Magnetism" earning Best Metal Albums of 2013 and 2018 respectively. (Meanwhile 2010's lauded "EOS" received a nomination in 2010). The duo are no strangers to Australia though and are very much remembered after they belted our heads in 2010 on their east coast tour. Blending Industrial Sludge, Post Metal, Doom and Stoner metal together, this duo crafts music of gargantuan and epic proportions giving us exactly what we didn't expect from Tallin, Estonia.
Reviews of recent releases:
"The vocals have a different perspective from what you would normally hear from the Doom/Sludge Metal scene. However there aren't many bands around like Talbot and that is a very good thing. As Talbot have their own sound and identity within the scene.
Overall, Magnetism is a gloriously heavy and exciting album that has a lot to say and is worth many repeated listens. Excellent and Highly Recommended." (Steve Howe/Outlaws of the Sun)
"Talbot can now be considered true pioneers of the Sludge/Post-Metal genre. Talbot are now a force to be reckoned with in the realm of extreme music. Scaled is a brilliant album and one that will be called a classic in the years to come." (The Sludgelord)
"All six tracks on Scaled offer excellent listening and varying dynamics and I can't recommend it enough. I expect to hear a lot more from the doom duo and if you're into something a bit different don't hesitate." (Phil Johnston / Echoes and Dust)
