Generation of Vipers - Howl and Filth (2011)

Black-as-night, heavy-as-fuck Southern-style sludge metal. Behind the gnarly riffage, rumbling bass, and pissed-off snarls, there's a dark sense of artfulness -- a sample collage here, an atmospheric piano-and-cello instrumental there -- that, along with a single-minded refusal to go melodic, helps to elevate Howl and Filth to greatness.

Track listing:
1. Ritual
2. Silent Shroud
3. All of This Is Mine
4. Eternal
5. Slow Burn
6. The Misery Coil

Unknown heaven
Sacred hell

  1. From your writeup, this feels like it should be somewhere near Gaza's "I don't care where I go when I die"?
