Sourvein - Will to Mangle (2002)

One of the best sludge/stoner doom records ever made. Riffs, bong smoke, riffs, hatred for mankind, and riffs. If Electric Wizard swapped-out half of their weed intake for crystal meth, it might sound like this. My old band played a warehouse show with this band right after Will to Mangle came out, and it was unquestionably one of the heaviest sets I've ever seen. Only problem: their name makes people think they're a nu metal band.

Track listing:
1. Bangleaf
2. Seamerchant
3. Blizzard
4. Blackzorlac
5. ZeroPath
6. 1%D.F.F.D.
7. Carveblind
8. Dirgewine

Stars in the sky, the scars of life
Seven seas of disbelief

  1. the Imperial Bastard EP is def my fav

  2. This and the Warhorse album are the hidden gems of Southern Lords best era (Maybe throw Teeth Of Lions... onto that list as well).

    1. Ha, I almost posted Warhorse instead of this
