    This has to be an odd guilty pleasure for me. The Japanese band plays stoner tinged doom metal (which is funny since they claim to abhor stoner) with really harsh vocals.

    Considering I also dislike stoner and harsh vocals, this has to be a contradiction of myself how i like them.

    I started with their debut "Master Of Brutality" several years ago, and when on vacation last July I bought their last one '"Thy Kingdom Scum", in a kind of compulsive purchase...but I'm glad! Found myself hooked into the band to the point of got the two albums in between too.

    Except for the voice which 90% of the time goes like Lemmy on a bad throat day mixed with Ron Royce and Mille Petrozza, the playing is absolutely beautiful melodic Black Sabbath based doom.

    The guitar an bass are extremely competent IMO, and the instrumental passages (sometimes long ones) are totally 70's driven.

    An example from their latest album

    Sad I missed these guys when they played in indy. I think I was doing annual training when I was still in the reserves.

    a bit reminiscent of Pantera IMHO.
