Sabbath Assembly - Restored to One
I'm going to say flat-out, I don't see how anyone could dislike this. Actually, you could if you were someone stupid enough to think anything religious instantly made it stupid. Then again, I don't want you on my blog if you are like that.
What we have here is a re-imagining/reprocessing of the hymns of the old 60s apocalypse cult known as The Process Church of the Final Judgment. So what made this cult special? They used music themselves to spread their hymns and beliefs, of which this album is a more updated take on those old versions. The Process Church was a rather unusual cult also in terms of belief. Labeled Satanic by most they referred to Gods, in particular, Jehova, Lucifer, and Satan, and that the Final Judgment would bring them all together, with Christ as judge, and Satan as the executor of judgment etc etc. Quite interesting really. Check the wiki if you are curious. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Process_Church_of_The_Final_Judgment
Moving on though, musically this is very strongly 60s psychedelic influenced. It's got that old 60s psych feel with folk, and even doom, which makes sense as the vocalist is none other than Jex Thoth.
Closest thing musically that comes to mind is The Electric Prunes and their Release of An Oath album, in that both albums are 60s psychedelic rock, and involve the reciting of hymns. Give this a listen, it is fantastic and extremely addictive. I guarantee you too will be singing "Glory to the Gods in the Highest".
