Blood On Canvas...

Goya / Wounded Giant - Split (2015)


Coming to us courtesy of the always-fine folks over at STB Records, this new split unites some of the mightier names in underground doom today for half an hour of spine-shivering bass, riffs dredged from the finest Sabbathic tradition, and vocals that ring out over the swamp of rumbling tones and crashing drum-fills like the heavy iron bells of Hell.  One long track from Goya, two tracks to match from Wounded Giant (though they pack in some faster material, more conducive to head-banging and body-shaking), and all the low-end stoner doom metal you could hope to have rattle your teeth right out through your ears.  There's not much else that needs to be said, except that it'll be limited to 430 copies on various forms of vinyl, so if you want a copy, you'll need to act fast.
