30-SECOND REVIEW: Age Of Taurus

‘Desperate Souls of Tortured Times’
Rise Above Records / Metal Blade Records, 2013
Intelligent, enthralling epic doom. This British band’s rich tones are reminiscent of Candlemass, but a shuddering bass and NWOBHM vibe give them a distinctive personality. Beautifully crafted songs, towering riffs and clean, almost delicate vocals (which soar during regal choruses) combine to make this an understated modern classic.
