Thy Grief Eternal: On blackened wings
20/10/10 || Butt-Beard
YAY! More sludgy gloom from the Doom Captain Butt-Beard! This is part two of my Electric Wizard demo days trilogy. When we last left our hero Jus Oborn and his gang they had put out the mediocre Lord Of Putrefaction demo. With Thy Grief Eternal Jussie decided to go fully into the doom part of death-doom. Slow, sludgy, filthy, and distorted HEAVY metal. Catchier songs, and a more original sound show an improvement and a maturity in the material. The demo contains 3 tracks, and a total of over 17 minutes of listening (dis)pleasure, and is a worthy addition to any stoner metal fan’s collection.
Oh and the band photo is fucken hilarious. 3 dudes in leather jackets and jeans standing at their local church looking tough. Look that up if nothing else because it is fucken stereotypical.
Well that’s all I’ve got on this demo, tune in next time to see the amazing conclusion of this wacky trilogy! Same cool band! Different release!
