Like a nightmare unfurling before you in sonic fashion, Cloak of Skies treats you to a wonderfully demented and dark listen. As twisted as this record is, it is like heroin for your ears. Cloak of Skies is an addicting record from beginning to end as you press play over and over again, submerging yourself in sludge filled doom bliss. Cloak of Skies is an oppressive record that provides you with an apocalyptic atmosphere that you have a hard time escaping from. This entire record is nightmarish and at the same time it is so very captivating. Among the nightmare inducing tones are traces of psychedelic elements as well providing you with vast ever shifting and twisting soundscapes.

From the very beginning of Cloak of Skies, you understand what a monster the record is going to be. The murky riffs dripping with sludge that is paired with the ever buzzing bass, heavy drumming and dissonant gnarled vocals pull you in and keep you along for a very harrowing and trippy listen. Cloak of Skies is a disturbing and hair raising listen, but even so you have a hard time pulling yourself away from it. From the massive and intense opener Pool of Failure on, Cloak of Skies retains that intensity and that immense sound throughout. Each track is just as dense and monstrous as the first as Drug Honkey buries you under waves of certain doom and despair.

Cloak of Skies is almost like an acid trip gone sideways. Drug Honkey pairs their psychedelic elements with their dream eating brand of sludge filled doom expertly to create a massively bone chilling sound. Each of the tracks on this record are done very well as they are all cohesive and roll together very well creating an entirely murky and ghastly sound that you can’t get enough of. This odd yet mesmerizing record grabs a hold of you from the first note dragging you along with it through a murky never ending abyss.

The longer that you listen and the longer that Cloak of Skies trudges along, the more and more that you end up sinking in to it. This nasty and ugly record is something to behold as Drug Honkey provides you with something unique and ultimately heavy. Drug Honkey incorporates sludge, doom and the excellent use of synths to gift you with an ill-fated, massive and soul blackening listen. The odd sounds that seep through your speakers are irresistible and you ultimately keep coming back for more and more.

This dissonant cloaked in apocalyptic gloom release is one solid and damning piece of metal. Cloak of Skies is a undeniable record that is hard to pass up on and one that should’t be passed up on.
