Billing themselves as post-rock probably because they are too modest to tell the truth, which is rather this: If “Slaves” was the new Mastodon record it would be on all the album of the year lists in all the magazines.
Innovative and fresh, but also hugely ambitious, it calmly and methodically begins with “Bastogne” which appears to have far greater importance than just the opening track, rather a statement of intent. All the hallmarks that make HoH a bit more special than a band just releasing their debut record are here. There’s a huge opening riff for sure, but there’s almost a prog band at work here, as it meanders and nips off into places that others not just wouldn’t dare, but wouldn’t even think of.
