Twenty years later, here is the UK proto-metal group Josiah to keep you up all night and make your neck hurt. “Out of The First Rays” is a slammer from start to finish. Remember that feeling the first time you heard Monster Magnet open “Spine of God” with that hair-raising psychedelia guitar figure? The twisting-and-turning “Malpaso” almost bests it. Josiah’s closest comparison is Sabbath, especially thanks to Matthew Bethancourt’s vocals. However, the band is fiercely running through a treasure chest that is their own. The ten-plus minute closer “Black Maria” is a druggy, sludgy, panning from side-to-side trip that erupts like a bluesy volcano for its grand conclusion. The buzzing opener “Head On” and the crushing “Sweet Smoke” recall Seventies AOR radio when it was brave enough to play the hard stuff. “Out of the First Rays” slays.
