MORKHIMMEL / THE TOWER: Split: LP

The Tower are sludgy doom stuff. This is definitely along the lines of bands like Cough or later Eyehategod, which means it’s just one beat for the whole side. If you are into getting really high and sitting in one spot for twenty minutes to dive into a record, this one’s your speed. Morkhimmel pick it up a little bit but are still pretty mid-tempo. Crusty vocals, dirty guitar sound, and bleak vibes are what you have come to expect from this Czech band. –Ian Wise (Insane Society, insanesociety.net)
