Hand of Doom
Punishing brutality across the board. One of the more exciting albums I've heard this year - twisting jagged riffs with that sense of heavy melody ala Yob. Gale, hats off to you, this is bloody awesome.
Favorite track: the counseled.
I'm not sure why I held off so long from adding this. It doesn't sound like Electric Wizard, as you might expect from the band name. Rather, it features the raspy vocal style typical of sludge, and loads of doomtastic riffs as well. No weak tracks. Reuben Sammitch
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
