Cathedral - Cosmic Requiem (1994)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Cathedral - Supernatural Birth Machine (1996)

A 43-minute-long "EP" from arguably the greatest stoner doom band of all time. Much like Immortal, Cathedral blaze right through any accusations of cheesiness -- for instance, during a breakdown in the title track, vocalist Lee Fucking Dorian shouts "DISCO SUPERNOVA!" like he's about to snap into a Slim Jim -- through sheer, unmatched ass-kicking abilities.

Track listing:
1. Cosmic Funeral
2. Hypnos 164
3. A Funeral Request - Rebirth
4. The Voyage of the Homeless Sapien

Children screaming velvet sorrow
In tombstone rulers burning land
