OvO - Croce Via
This one was released last year, but I just got around to listening to it this week. It's hard to explain why I like this Italian duo so much. These advocates of doom create heavy, dark, and slightly disturbing sludge that makes feel like something terrible is going to happen to me just for listening to it. Actually...I guess explaining why I like this band is easier than I thought. The driving rhythms on this album make it their most enjoyable to date. Take Melvins, Boris, and Boredoms, stick them in a blender, throw a little mud and general despise for your ears and testicles in there, and you'll get a better idea of what OvO sounds like. Certainly not for everyone.
