One of my favs of the last year. Oliwia Sobieszek is one of the finest voices in metal.

Nice! It reminds me of Dool with a more nevrotic edge.

She delivers an awful lot like early Siouxsie with hints of Toyah, imo. Definitely that late '70s/early '80s post-punk feel. I guess you could call that derivative in the strictest sense, but - apart from Cold in Berlin - it's not something I can really think of as have being used in Doom before, especially the retro-occult-stoner side of it. Makes it pretty interesting, as far as I'm concerned.

...with a hint of Natasha Khan.

I don't mind the songs. What I really don't like about them is the guitar sound.
