"SUMOKEM have dramatically changed their sound since their last album. As their latest release The Guardian Of Yosemite sees the band take influence from bands such as Mastodon, Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden in places. Overall the album is top heavy with brutally paced doom, sludge and stoner metal riffs. However, the band show their love for genres such as progressive rock, NWOBHM and classic heavy metal sounds.

Some parts of the album are genuinely exciting upon your first listen. Whilst other parts of the album take a few listens to fully understand and to appreciate.

The production is superb and allows the music to flow at a natural pace. The Guardian Of Yosemite also excels on the technical level. As the band prove what talented and accomplished musicians they actually are. The album contains some of the best technically sounding riffs I've heard this year. If you're in the mood for a different sounding doom/sludge/stoner metal album that pays respect to the classic days of heavy metal then get with the program and listen to this album now. It's a seriously great album. End Of."
