Description

Drone/Doom

An Extreme Doom project from Stephen O'Malley (Sunn O))), Burning Witch, Thorr's Hammer, and a plethora of Drone/Experimental projects) and James Plotkin (Regurgitation, Old, Scorn, Khlyst, Atomsmasher).

The general characteristics of their sound consist of blaring, droning riffs, sparse drumming, loud blasts of feedback, and utterly disturbing screamed vocals.
