On the DOOM CHARTS for MARCH 2020
doomcharts.com/2020/04/01/doom-charts-march-2020

REVIEWS:
- Doom Charts March 2020: "You didn’t expect such a variety on a debut album. The Italians bring all the best from different periods from 70’s doom to modern stoner. Be prepared to get excited, be sure to be fascinated. Psychedelic acidity and electrified melancholy blues will pierce your soul. And the singer is the perfect match between Jim Morrison and Glenn Danzig."

- Desert Psychlist: "This is the sound of a band who found their mojo then tried to smoke it, a band who met the devil at the infamous "crossroads" and sold him a bag of exotic herbs. What, however, sets Lunar Swamp apart, from bands travelling along similar blues flecked highways, is that despite all their fuzz and distortion, and that they underpin all their songs with a strong doomic undercurrent, is the fact that these guys have a true understanding and affinity with the music they choose to play."

- Fuzzy Cracklins: "Lunar Swamp has dropped half an hour of fuzzy riffage with vocals that could only come from the darkest, dankest depths of The Swamp. These five songs will leave your ears dripping with swamp moss and reaching for your jug of Bayou rum, and paddling your boat across the fetid waters to your next crawdad boil."

- Stoner Hive: ""UnderMudBlues" is a powerful debut and a lesson in atmosphere and style, melding Sabbathian riffs with a southern blues flair in total commitment to Lunar Swamp's unique and vivid vision of doom."

- La Planète du Stoner Rock: "Les italiens signe un disque qui vient fracasser la scène européenne avec une très haute teneur en fuzz ; ce qui devrait largement subvenir à nos besoins dans le genre, junkies que nous sommes. A cela s’ajoute un savoureux mélange entre stoner, doom et blues pour notre plus grand bonheur saupoudré d’un mixage aux petits oignons. Clairement, « Under Mud Blues » résonne comme l’un de ces disques dont on ne peut pas passer à côté en ce début d’année."

- DenpaFuzz: "En una dualidad en la que el blues del delta es protagonista, los italianos LUNAR SWAMP conjugan todo el sentimiento con riffs arenosos más propios del desert-rock en EP debut “UNDERMUDBLUES”. Una conjunción en la que el fuzz nos intoxica mientras los efluvios de los pantanos narcotizan unos temas que huelen a humo cannabico y bourbon de garito de mala muerte. Si a ello unimos un atractivo toque doom, el cóctel está servido. Distorsiones, y ecos de los humerales sureños conviven en una armonía en la que los sonidos primitivos toman una nueva dimensión. Arcaicos si, pero lo suficientemente chamánicos como que las hierbas psicotrópicas y los hongos alucinógenos habiten en cada uno de los temas."

- The Sleeping Shaman: "Italian trio Lunar Swamp kicks off UnderMudBlues: crushing fuzz played at a stately, doomy pace, with drums understated and nearly subliminal. The bellowing baritone vocals are those of a high priest who’s just summoned a mad horde of elemental spirits, whipping them into a frenzy to do his bidding. It’s blues, but where Robert Johnson lamented the hellhound on his trail, Lunar Swamp are holding the leash."

Gbhbl: "The ambience of a swamp, bluesy psychedelia, a touch of stoner and some downright mucky sounding doom riffs welcomes us to UnderMudBlues. Wonderful vocals alongside the doomy riffs just kicks all kinds of ass. An astonishing release."

- Outlaws of the Sun: "UnderMudBlues is a superbly produced release that should allow the band to make a name for themselves within the Doom/Sludge/Stoner Metal community."

- La Habitación 235: "En un ámbito más propios a los profundos pantanos del Amazonas, la siempre hospitalidad sureña de Carolina del Norte, el blues de la vieja escuela y las densidades más propias de los primeros redondos de Wo Fat, os presentamos un prometedor arranque como es el de los italianos Lunar Swamp. Como consecución al sencillo que precisamente abre este notable debut lanzado el pasado mes de Febrero, el power trío de Catanzaro se bautiza en nombre del mejor de los riffs con este “UnderMudBlues”."

El Coyote: "São 28 minutos atestados de um incessante feitiço impossível de quebrar. Deixem-se inundar e enlamear pela fumegante, letárgica, esotérica e intoxicante ambiência de ‘UnderMudBlues’, e vivenciar de espírito dormente todo este autêntico ópio sonoro."

- Mangorave: "Generally speaking, Lunar Swamp are remorseless, powerful and stunning on their first release. This one might catch lovers of Heavy Blues Rock such as VUG, as well as fans of occult Doom Metal like Candlemass, and also Swamp Blues fanatics who enjoy Pretty Lightning or Little Albert."

- Earthquaker Mexico: "Tras la escucha detenida UnderMudBlues del tenemos los elementos suficientes para escribir que Lunar Swamp puede convertirse en un nuevo referente del doom lisérgico gracias a su acercamiento a las raíces sonoras que le dieron origen. Sin lugar a dudas en el material hay fuerza y riffs malignos, pero el trío italiano sabe imprimir en esta primera entrega la esencia melódica del viejo blues sin que se pierda el sello inconfundible del doom, logrando con esta fórmula un sonido propio que casi nadie ha logrado más allá de emplear el mismo método de trabajo acústico. Sus casi treinta minutos de duración fluyen a gran velocidad en forma contradictoria a las aguas estancadas que le dotan de inspiración, por lo que sin duda está en esta capacidad el ingrediente que lo hace indispensable dentro de nuestra colección sonora..."

- Roadie Metal: "O Black Sabbath fez bem em manter os traços de Blues em meio ao seu Rock pesado que depois se tornou conhecido como Heavy Metal. Assim, o leque de possibilidades para se criar arranjos, harmonias e composições permaneceu bastante amplo. O Lunar Swamp aprendeu bem direitinho e agora são eles quem ensinam como fazer um Doom Metal sujo e pesado, mas ao mesmo tempo elegante e refinado. Tal qual um casebre aconchegante e farto dentro de uma floresta cortada por um rio lamacento. Nesta lama sim, vale a pena pular e se sujar todo!"

- Metal Nalata: "Uma poderosa e preciosa estréia, um trabalho cuja sonoridade é meticulosa, sutil, ainda que sem muitas pretensões estilísticas, a Itália e suas bandas de rara inspiração. Os riffs lentos e sujos criados há mais de cinquenta anos, ainda ecoam com a mesma força e intensidade que antes, graças a bandas como essa e a discos como esse, ao Doom Metal italiano, minhas reverências."

- Riff Finder Reviews: "It's doomy, it's bluesy, it's fuzzy and the lead singer has a Danzig-esque croon so there's alot to love here.I especially love that this is an Italian band playing American blues."

- King Valley video review: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gD-j-mxW3PI&feature=youtu.be

- New Groove Magazine: "Coming in hard like with that grimy blues that sounds like a super group of Black Sabbath, Danzig, and Type O Negative. When Shamanic Owl hit I was like “Fuck Yeah”.
This album resignation like the first time I peeled the plastic from Masters of Reality."

- The Highly Creative: "Riffs have the old school stoner feeling (from the school of Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Sleep, and so on), with occasional flashes of psychedelic rock and blues."

- Doommabbestia: "le atmosfere sulfuree e sabbattiane che la band ci propone, iniettandole di blues primordiale, ci trasportano in una dimensione notturna, sinistra, ma anche dannatamente sensuale. Come se i Doors decidessero di diventare una Doom band"

- Bluestown Music: "Deze EP van Lunar Swamp zuigt mij tergend langzaam hun moeras binnen om mij nooit meer los te laten….
Aan mij hebben zij een gewillig slachtoffer."
