The Endless Road Turns Dark brings the doom riffage in ways that does indeed recall the band Trouble.† Whether it recalls stuff like their classic self titled album or their older albums Iíll leave up to the listener to decide.† Regardless, there is a nice array of Black Sabbath influenced doom to be found here and itís always nice to hear such an album.† Having Eric Wagner on vocals is the icing on the cake and brings this album into even higher territories.† This is some of the stronger doom Iíve heard for a while and it couldnít have come out at a better time.†

The guitar riffs are massive and catchy and really suitable for the doom style.† Itís as if the band mined the classics and incorporated what they found into their own new and exciting sound.† While the music is solid it is also very unoriginal.† This is the biggest flaw to be found and it seems Wagner wants to stick close to his guns without trying anything super adventurous.† Though it is similar to other doom, there is enough quality in this recording that itís definitely worth checking out.† The misery the band brings forth recalls Black Sabbath and is really atmospheric in nature.† This is a strong doom recording overall and brings loads of good riffs to the table.† The familiarity present is definitely an issue, but the band is having so much fun that one overlooks this.†

Iím very interested to see what other endeavors Eric Wagner continues to put forth after hearing this album and not the bandís previous one.† The songs are fairly mid tempo and the band rarely wallows in serene moments although there are a couple on the disc.† Aficionados of doom will find a lot to like here as it brings a classic style into modern context.† Though it stays in fairly safe path, the music shines with quality and is something that fans of the genre will adore.†

Rating: 7.9 out of 10
