North Carolinian sludgelords Sourvein have been together in one incarnation or another since 1993. This is their first full length album since 2002 and it delivers down and dirty, raw, doomy sludge rock with snarling, rough and dry, black metal vocals. Some tracks have faster, higher tempo hero metal riffs thrown in here and there. Repetitive, meditative and grinding. Excellent drumming. Conjuring EyeHateGod, Noothgrush, early Melvins, Sleep (Volume One) and Electric Wizard on track seven.Recorded in Moyack, North Carolina in 2009 and 2010, released in 2011. Led by T-Roy Medlin and joined on this album by guitarist King James Haun (Ol Scratch), bassist Ahmasi O Daniel and drummer Jeffrie Moen.
