Marzuraan - Solid State cd

Can a band that has chosen an Old Lady Drivers song title for their name not be good? Possibly the heaviest doom album to have come out of the UK since Electric Wizard's Come My Fanatics, this features Lee Stokoe and it contains crawling doom/sludge with a lo-fi sound. Whereas the Wizard focused on crushing doom riffs, Marzuraan has a more improvisational bend and noise leanings. There is only one track with vocals, "Death Dirge Has Come," which features one of the scariest vocal performances ever, only comparable with Edgy of Burning Witch and Alan Dubin of Khanate. Plus, nice artwork by Stephen O' Malley. 2004 cd on Traqueto.
