In Review: The Medea Project – Sisyphus

With the awful weather and some virus that people seem to mention every now & then it’s always great when something comes along and really fits the bleakness of the current climate, this time it comes in the form of some Dark Primal Gothic Doom from South Africa’s two-piece The Medea Project with their debut album Sisyphus

Remember at the start of this post I said mentioned bleakness? well the opening track “Prelude” starts off slow with clean vocal’s from Brett but how do I put this – the music very much reminds me of the tv show Westworld specifically the Piano it’s gentle but you just have dread in the pit of your stomach that something bad is going to happen, it’s like that “Babylon” begins and that feeling is still there but that opening riff & drums just pound through you but at the same time it’s impossible to not to start nodding your head back and forth…

The song I have played over & over & over appears next ” To Know Us Is To Fear Us” Thunderous bass line, Slow Death Metal style guitar parts – Brett’s vocals all the way through this but what I absolutely adore are Pauline’s angry almost Atari Teenage Riot esque shouts of pure defiance – This is easily my favorite track of the album but the transition to “The Ghost Of St Augustine” is truly wonderful the intro is quite simply the best intro that Type O Negative never created it’s slow, methodical and has a mix of both clean & harsh vocals from Brett

If I haven’t spoken about the drums throughout this album so far them I’m doing the album a disservice by not mentioning just how good they are

Gloam” is up next if I had to pick another highlight track this would the one although the opening riff and ferocity of “Reaver” it should also come with a PSA as if this comes on in the gym you might get a little carried away and really ache the next day. “G.E.O.F.F.” is up next and changes the pace of the album it’s almost a take 5 minutes we know you’ve taken a beating kind of track but with a hint of Danzig.

Fear” is the penultimate offering and as with the previous track takes a slower approach but still packs a punch lastly, “The Desert Song” is full-on Surf DooM!!!! if that’s not a genre then the band have just created and really this makes me so happy that this is the last track as it’s such a good closer.

Every time I listen to this album I get something new, have different attachments to each song but still with the same end results this a strong debut and it’s something I’m going to be playing many years down the road
