Samothrace – “Reverence to Stone” – [20 Buck Spin]

samothrace-reverence-to-stone

The second full length album from the Kansas-founded, now Seattle-based band is a monumental slab of epic doom, both melancholic and psychedelic (think Asunder meets Sleep). Bret Spinks’ mournful yowls are complemented here by the spidery bass work of now ex-member Dylan Desmond (see also: Bell Witch). I saw this band play in 2012 at Sugar Mountain with Cythoth. He was impressed enough to buy the album on vinyl for KFJC and we, alas, lost it; now it is restored, courtesy of Number Six, in CD form. It’s a great album, one of the heaviest doom releases of 2012. R.I.P. Phil, a trillion bowls of Purple Dad for this one.
