GOLDEN BATS: “Godhead” b/w “Bunny Lake”: 7”

Holy shit, this is evil. Each of these songs rips into a crushing stoner metal dirge right out the gate and never lets up. This has a real sludgy Neurosis feel to it. And was that a fucking organ? The vocals, echoing up out of some profane chasm, actually have more of a hoarse, desolate hardcore vibe than anything—sort of reminiscent of early Ceremony, minus many beats per minute. Extra points awarded for incorporation of alien laser sounds at the end.
