Staff review by

Complex yet subtle. Such adjectives immediately come to mind when describing the 3rd Hammers' opus - "The Locust Years". This album clearly owes much of its substance to the fertile minds that drive Slough Feg, the most obvious aspect being the Epic feel of the songs. It comes as no surprise therefore that HOM also features Slough Feg dudes Mike Scalzi and John Cobbett.
