With “Fear Is a Cruel Master”, RUBY THE HATCHET deliver exactly the brain-frying, catchy yet full of raw energy thriller-album that the American trailblazers acclaimed predecessor “Planetary Space Child” (2017) promised it to be. Five long years have passed since the New Jersey psych-rock squad dropped their last album, but the wait is finally over. RUBY THE HATCHET have reached a new peak of writing music as a collective that was hard won through sacrifices and an iron will to get better and to reach a new level each time.

Everything that makes RUBY THE HATCHET such an outstanding and wildly loved act even among their peers is there – ranging from those sultry, honey-smoked vocals, via lush yet crisp guitars, to the spirit of rock ‘n roll organ heroics. “Fear Is a Cruel Master” is definitely an album written after a decade of being in a band and looking back without regret at all the things done or not done. It is a testimony to that journey, as we now embark to follow the band’s equally impressive and massive sonic wake.

Dripping with fuzzed out guitars, soaring vocals, and swaggering groove, North Carolina duo Crystal Spiders’ debut album Molt (2020) quickly won the hearts of stoner metal fans and critics alike. For their follow up, MORIERIS, bassist Brenna Leath (Lightning Born, The Hell No) and drummer Tradd Yancey (Doomsday Profit) take a lead guitar assist from Mike Dean — Corrosion of Conformity bassist and Leath’s bandmate in fellow Ripple Music labelmates Lightning Born — for a rollercoaster ride of doomy atmospherics, razor sharp riffs, and infectious rhythms.
