Lamort – “Purge” – [Heart & Crossbone]
When I started to listen to this, I thought of Cy Thoth’s voice and regretted that I never heard him sing. I wondered if he sounded anything like the voice on the first track of this release. Then I looked at the lyrics printed on the insert, and they were too small and jammed together to read, so I just listened. I know nothing about metal, or doom, or sludge, so I don’t know how to describe this. One reviewer calls it a “vile eulogy for mankind.” The duo describe their voices as “mouth noises,” and no way can you hear their French accents. The outraged energy washed over me. Track 11 is a cover of The Beatles’ “Come Together,” and it’s pretty great. Enjoy.
