AH HAH, Doom metal.
I first picked up Warhorse several years ago with their Independant release which had Krista doing vocals and playing guitar. I have to say that that release had groove and just straight up doom that had me listening to it over and over. I wasn't too sure about this one seeing as how she quit the band and was replaced with some guy. That really depresses me, which is all the more reason to listen to doom.
I do have to say that this album crushes anything in its path. Its slow, punishing, and just downright authentic. Now I know alot of you guys don't like Doom metal or Stoner metal but this album is different, Its not like Electric wizard were you just feel stoned listening to it, not that thats a bad thing. Although when I listen to this, it seems as if the other guitarist is playing another song when he adds the solo work in riff. Kind of out of place. But who gives a shit, its DOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also wanted the acoustic intro to be a little longer seeing as how I like when warhorse plays acoustic ballads.
