An insane improvement over the Sabbath worshipping 'First Communion' as Stoned Jesus carve out their niche in the stoner/doom landscape. 'Seven Thunders Roar' is much cleaner than 'First Communion', something that would normally spell 'doom' for this kind of music but when combined with Stoned Jesus' new-found ear for song-writing it allows for a greater appreciation of the individual performances. At the end of the day though this is stoner/doom and where would it be without the riffs to back it up? Fortunately Stoned Jesus more than deliver in this department from the crushingly heavy 'Electric Mistress' to the brilliant moment in 'I'm the Mountain' where the electric guitar finally enters. Essential listening for fans of stoner/doom or good heavy riffage in general.
