Saint Vitus




USA - Disbanded.

Description

Traditional Doom

St. Vitus was one of the first and greatest traditional Doom bands ever. And has acted as in inspiration for countless others. Together with giants like Candlemass, they belong to the main bands representing Doom in the 80s, spawning countless bands in their wake (both Doom-metal and Stoner-rock). Influenced by Black Sabbath, they created some ultra slow and heavy albums that dragged themselves forward at an almost uncomfortably slow pace. A piece of Doomy history that one should hear at least once.
