Is it just me, or is this band superb in every way? Ever since I started really hearing doom, none of the bands have really struck me the way Vitus has. The other contender would be Penance, where each of these bands' releases hits me in an entirely different way. Don't get me wrong, I love Rev Biz, Solitude Aeturnus, and all the Hellhound bands. But for me, Saint Vitus is where it's at. The slow dirge of the self-titled is perfection. The more rockin' Born Too Late with Wino is solid, and C.O.D. is one of my favorites. Not to mention, the lyrics are a great read. The only one I lack is Hallow's Victim. Is this thing even on CD? Out of those early bands, Vitus is easily the best, in my opinion. Pentagram is not far behind, but Trouble and Candlemass don't match up, though Candlemass is a different beast altogether.
