Genre: Doom, psychedlic metal

Hometown: Cambridge, UK.

Background: Their music is heavily influenced by the late 1960s when heavy metal was emerging. Allmusic praised the band's ability to recreate a particular aspect of this era, describing the band as "celebrating the Summer of Love's soul-chilling autumn: a blasted landscape, post-flower power, resembling Altamont's killing fields, reeking of the Manson Family murders, and, naturally, sounding like a mish-mash of all of the apocalyptic musical forces that converged upon that era."

The band has been metaphorically described as "the original Alice Cooper band jamming in a cell with early Black Sabbath and the Stooges".In order to replicate the sound of that era, the band uses vintage instruments and recording equipment.

Everyone's Favourite: 'Runaway Girls'.
