Don't you guys just fucking HATE the way that every time I post a doom metal album, I'm all "hey guys, I don't even like doom metal, but this band is pretty good"? (see past examples here and here, to name just a few.) I mean, enough with the fucking back-peddling already, who cares if you "like" that "type" of music or not, just POST THE FUCKING DOWNLOAD LINK AND GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY ALREADY. It's pretty fucking obnoxious, the way I basically just write the same descriptions over and over, never adding any new insight or anything, really just taking up precious bits of your mental space like some sort of pathetic mind vampire.

That being said, I don't even like doom metal. But Burning Witch's Crippled Lucifer is fucking amazing and classic and depressing as fuck and harsh blah blah blah etc etc etc!

You know the story already: Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson post-Thorr's Hammer, before Anderson formed Goatsnake and O'Malley went on to hipster shit like Khanate and Sunn O))). There is nothing "fun" or "rockin" about this album. It is pure hate and evil. Do drugs.

I'm getting old, man. No time to fucking mince words. Don't like it, step up and let's fucking dance.

That is all.

This record makes a strong impression but it's as 'hipster bullshit' as anything else these individuals have done. Which is to say, not at all or very much according to your viewpoint.

Khanate? Hipster?? FUCK THAT. Hipsters may 'like' 'em, but that band sure as fuck weren't hipster metal/sludge/whatever....well, aside from SOMA.

Burning Witch were, are and always will be the BEST.
