Dö - Den

Saw this album up on bandcamp tagged under Doom, and I passed on it, more than once. I have to admit to a cover bias here. I saw the band name, saw the umlaut, saw the black and gray cover, and thought this has got to be another death metal band disguised as a doom metal band. So, I didn't even listen. My mistake.

(Tangent Time: Is anybody else getting annoyed that every black and death metal band out there tags themselves as doom because they have one slow or dropped out moment on their record?)

It wasn't until I'd seen that brave heavy metal front liner Steve had ventured in and stuck a flag in the album's soil that I felt courage enough to venture in myself. What you'll find here is four songs and 28 minutes of solid sludgy stoner doom. It won't start any revolutions, but that doesn't matter, it's just really good and that's good enough in a world of saturation, also it doesn't hurt that YOU-NAME-THE-PRICE.
