We get a thrill from every positive review, but few can top the buzz from a 4 out of 4 review from living icon Jim DeRogatis. Here’s what he had to say about our new Darkscorch Canticles:
Masters of the ultra-high-quality, beyond-esoteric, near-obsessive reissue, Chicago’s Numero Group takes a sharp left turn in its usual trailblazing through the tarpits of musical history to spotlight an era and a sound that previously have been lost to the sands of time: those early days of heavy metal when blues and psychedelia were first being melded in imaginative ways to form a new genre; when kids in American basements were putting their own Midwestern stamps on the early innovations of the Brits in Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Uriah Heep, and when the haze of pot smoke parted to reveal by the light of the lava lamp sweaty-palmed fascinations with Dungeons & Dragons, The Lord of the Rings, Aleister Crowley, Anton Lavey, and other such artifacts of darkness that almost seem quaint in these post-Internet days.
