“Y’know I once wrote a song for you…,” sings doom legend Eric Wagner in “Sick of it All” over a riff so morose no one would want it in a song about them. Doom band Godhunter from Tucson just lost vocalist Charlie and doom legend Wino was just kicked out of Norway for being caught with a lot of meth, which is really worrisome. Thankfully Wagner, the ex-Trouble vocalist who sang on that band’s most classic material, has a new album from his latest project The Skull that will soothe doomed nerves.Said record, For Those Which Are Asleep is streaming at Decibel HERE.
Decibel is streaming this completely bad ass and highly recommended platter of low end, clattering drums, occasional spooky organ parts and vintage classic metal vocals that could raise the dead. Enjoy the whole record but especially check out “The Door”, a mesmeric, questioning anthem of the utmost caliber.
