From St Loius: Big dark doom infused heavy rock, metal in more classic sense (not Black, not Death), heavy screamed vocals, solid beats, chugging walls of Marshalls. THESE ARE ALL COVERS (except one) of epic songs by epic bands. RIYL Kahnate, Napalm Death, Sepultura, day drinking in mausoleums. Great stuff guaranteed to cheer you up because no matter how suicidal you might feel this stuff sounds so bleak you will realize that you are doing just fine.
1)* (5:23) Fabio Frizzi: fades in with impending synth, finally a deep slow doomy plod ensues with dark guitar that embodies the album title, segues into next track well (play together?) 2)* (7:27) Smelltalica: cool solid head nodding beat with a big church bell gonging (its “for whom the bell tolls” after all), slips into darkness 3) (7:02) Slayer: more of a basic mid paced rocker, head rockin intensifies, blends into next 4) (3:20) FCC “fuckin” Darkthrone: upbeat rocker, almost moshable , great track play in safe harbor 5) (7:57) Danzig: starts with quiet introspective guitar and finally lets loose after 4+ minutes into a slow desperate screamed dark plod 6)* (3:05) Hellhammer: fast, then grind’y slow, then fast, you get it 7) (6:50) Pungent Stench: big heavy proto-doom with some audible chorus on guitars, soaring spacey guitar leads, heavy and doomy trippy, about 2/3rd way through it shifts to a double time triplet intensity, then back again to the plod 8)* (6:26) “re-recorded” non-cover: holy hellish desperate anguish on a hockey stick, get this man some Prozac and Demerol stat, a mid-slow doomed deathly march into a grave
