A long time ago--before I was into doom metal--I consciously avoided the Electric Wizard album Dopethrone. I saw the iconic image of Satan hitting a bong and figured it wasn't for me; however, I couldn't have been more wrong.
Well, I'm not going to make the same mistake with the new Bongripper album, Satan Worshipping Doom. It's the band's sixth LP, and the title does not mislead, believe me. Doom fans get what they ask for here: Four tracks that each top ten minutes; loads of massive riffs; a thick, rumbling mix; and plenty of psychedelic undertones. There's even some black metal floating through these songs, too.
Stream the entire album below and let me know what you think. DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
