Sludge, heavy, doom ,stoner, you can’t review an Ocean Chief album without using minimum 2 of these 4 words. Univerusms hârd is already the 5 th release of these Swedes and just as it’ s predecessors, the band present themselves with one heavy fucker of a record. It does differ itself from predecessor “”STEN” by being a more versatile effort then the sheer monotone drone of the aforementioned release. Don’t get me wrong, Universum is hard to digest and is still far from being the soundtrack for a summer ride out, but it will do stuff to you if you decide to give it go whilst laying flat out on the ground watching the starts on clear winter night…. 7 tracks in native Swedish who will put a big smile on the face of those into this kind of ultra doom stoner. Nice very nice indeed.
