I know what it is your craving: some thick, heavy, smokey Doom Metal. Well here it is. Michigan natives, Mountain Goat, bring it thicker than your prom date. This self-titled slab of sex was released digitally this month. The link to this bad boy was provided to me by Guitarist/Vocalist Monte Davis, a fine young chap who I met at a horror con (Cinema Wasteland to be exact, the best one out there). Upon our meeting, he ate my waffles, and we discussed music. After spending some time creaming over Opeth and Sunn O))), he eventually told me of his band. Cut to a few days ago, and he sent me a link to stream the album and give it a listen. The opening fuzz sucks the listener right into the album’s heavy atmosphere of sludge and riffs.
