Georgian Skull
Mother Armageddon Healing Apocalypse
March 2011
Released: 2008, Scarlet
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: JP

I’m glad Scarlet Records decided to reissue this album because I believe for many it got missed the first time around in 2008. These central Canadian dudes certainly deserve the recognition this time. Georgian Skull rose from the ashes of another local (Ontario) band and the lads put out this overlooked gem of a record.

MOTHER ARMAGEDDON, HEALING APOCALYPSE is a heavy horse-pill of a record. Dark, heavy and dense these guys are drenched in the spirit (and spirits) of heaviness. Grabbing bits and pieces from the long history of the 70’s Sabath lineage, Georgian Skull keep that very tradition alive. They bring bits of Doom, Stoner, and Sludge to the table they blend it all up into a potent brew. They even bring some little hints of Death on cuts like ‘Doom Lord Pusher’ with the occasional really gruff vocals and bursts of speed, think old Obituary.

The guitar tone is monster-thick, big slabs of simple riffs slapped upon the Metal BBQ and seared to perfection. Al Bones (who also moonlights in The Mighty Nimbus) roars, barks and growls his way across the 52-minute album, bringing shades of Dorian and Danzig to the party.

MOTHER ARMAGEDDON, HEALING APOCALYPSE is a crushing and punishing debut, loaded with intense groove, hypnotizing heaviness and metal attitude. An odd signing of Scarlet but a wise move to help these guys have another crack at it and if this debut is any indication they will quickly join the ranks of the elite.
