Editorial Reviews

Double vinyl LP pressing of this 2009 release. It's not so much a band name as a statement of intent. Not a one-off supergroup, but rather the first chapter in what promises to be an epic narrative. More to the point, though--Shrinebuilder is the meeting of musical monoliths, the Justice League of underground heaviness: Scott "Wino" Weinrich of Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, and The Hidden Hand on guitar; Al Cisneros of Om and Sleep on bass; Dale Crover of Melvins and Altamont on drums; Scott Kelly of Neurosis on guitar. And all four of them on vocals. With these four living legends in the room, the term "highly anticipated" doesn't even come close.

The sound is absolutely massive, expansive, imaginative and inspired.
Joseph R. Natoli
They are a pretty humble group of musicians that put out some well written, trippy music.
Gene Connell
This album is easily one of my favorite albums to come out in recent years.

Shrinebuilder are an exciting super group formed from great and influential artists in the Doom, Sludge and Stoner genres, who play an elaborate mixture of the three styles resulting in an incredibly strong and well formed rock and metal listening experience.

The line up features Scott Kelly on guitar and vocals (Neurosis and frequent and vocal guest to Mastodon) Al Cisneros on bass and vocals (Sleep/Om) Dale Crover on the drums (The Melvins) and finally the legendary and hardworking Scott `Wino' Weinrich on guitar and vocals (Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, The Hidden Hand and vocal guest to Clutch, Probot and more)

With a line up like that, a whole sub-community of rock and metal fans should be clamoring all over this band. The best thing of all however is that, unlike most super-groups Shrinebuilder actually gel really well as a band and turn in a collaborative feeling record that actually sounds both as good as the sum of its parts and as if it was written together in a room by all the members, rather than just hastily compiled from their own individual songs.

Even with this collaborative feel and distinct Shrinebuilder sound however, each individual member still manage to put their own stylistic stamp on each and every song.

The tracks on their self titled debut studio album from 2009 are all fairly long and explore a mixture of moods, with rumbling bass, fuzzy effects laiden lead guitar and a mixture of vocal styles that range from a classic rock feel to loud sludge style barking, often transitioning seamlessly.

The album is absolutely consistent throughout and all five tracks are exemplary, and would each be a stand out track on anyone else's album.

The title says it all -- Wino has never sounded this inspired, and Al Cisneros brings amazing depth. The vocal interplay between the two is seamless and never fails. The songwriting is fantastic, and the groove is every bit as mighty as the cover art suggests. The sound is absolutely massive, expansive, imaginative and inspired.

If you thought Down was a supergroup, think again. What we have here is Shrinebuilder, a band made up of Wino (guitarist, singer for St. Vitus, Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, Place Of Skulls, Hidden Hand, etc..) Dale Crover (Melvins drummer), Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and Al Cisneros (OM). This album is amazing. You get the best of all worlds. You'll hear some Obsessed type riffs, some Melvin drumming, and a track or 2 similar to OM. Check out the samples. This album should not be missed.
***Also check out Scott Weinrich AKA Wino and all of the bands he's been a part of. The guy is one of the most underrated guitarists/singers ever!

Blimey, this year has been a corker for rawk - the progressive vibes of Mastodon's "Crack the Skye", the shifting sands of Sunn O))) "Monoliths and Dimensions", the expansive beauty of Mono's "Hymn to the Immortal Wind", the tribal psychadelia of Minsk's "With Echoes in the Movement of Stone", the sublime dark majesty of Wolves in the Throne Room's "Black Cascade", the claustophobic yet expansive layers of Nadja/Black Boned Angel's self-titled offering, the ethereal indo-stoner fusion of OM's "God is Good" and the driven hypnotic madness of Zu's "Carboniferous", to name but a few.

The past two weeks have delivered two further gems: A Storm Of Light's "Forgive Us Our Trespasses" and then Shrinebuilder!

What can I say about the Shrinebuilder album? Although it is early days, and I am in danger of getting carried away, this could just be one of the definitive post-Sabbath albums. My, my, is it good. If you are here looking at this review, don't hesitate: get it. I am confident you will not regret it. If any negative reviews appear, I will eat my beard.

I don't want to call this band a supergroup. They are a pretty humble group of musicians that put out some well written,
trippy music. Al Cisneros on bass. He may be the best bass player in heavy music today.

It is a great hard to find cd. A super band with Melvins members. A must have for any Melvins fan.

What else can you say? Wino, Scott Kelly, Dale Crover and Al Cisneros.........This album has everything you'd expect and more from some of the best in the business. If you are a Doom Metal fan this is a must have 5 tracks of pure doom.....The standout track for me is "Blind For All To See" but each track stand tall. A MUST HAVE!

This is a great album. As a Tool and OM fan, I appreciate the depth and instrumentation. As a doom metal fan, I appreciate the 'doominess'. I think the world's a better place for having this album. Only one complaint though, and it's an unpopular one. I don't like the Neurosis singers vocals. I think this music would have done better without his input, and it makes for what would be a pleasant listen, kind of grating and unecessarily aggressive. That's just me though, perhaps I'm getting too old for metal? Have a listen and make your own decision, but by and large, you can't fault this album. It's catchy, has great music from great musicians and the album length is just perfect.
For fans of OM, Neurosis, Isole, Yob, Palms, Melvins, Tool, Intronaut.
