Shrinebuilder – Shrinebuilder (2009)

Shrinebuilder was the only studio record by the band of the same name, which was a super group consisting of Dale from the Melvins, Al from Om and Sleep, Wino from Saint Vitus, and Scott from Neurosis. It is a fairly polished affair, which is a solid listen, with most of the guys sharing vocal duties. Some of the tracks are quite monolithic, but standing up to all the other projects that these guys have been involved in, most of which will go down in metal history, Shrinebuilder unfortunately pales in comparison. That is not to say that the record is bad, it just stands in the shadow of those greater than it.
