Thy Kingdom Scum (Metal Blade Records)

Great album name, solid stoner/doom band from Japan. Quite like Down, ya can’t understand a goddamn word, but the riffs are thick and heavy, so you let it (mud)slide. When the tempo increases, so does the Iommi idolatry, with the finale of the 7 minute “Brother Bishop” hammering-on somewhere near “Into the Void.”
