Burning Witch – Crippled Lucifer: Towers (1998)

Past members of Sunn O))) and both their current members played with Burning Witch, so I assumed it would be good, Metallum rated it as 92% and I was thinking it would be a good album to check out, but I ended up disappointed. This album incorporates the exact aspects of doom and sludge that I don’t like. Hard to precisely describe, but the early doom and sludge has qualities akin to radio butt-rock; the vocals are too passionate and the guitar riffs are more down tuned than truly heavy. Honestly, I think people are more into Sunn O))) and this album floats around that fame like a piece of driftwood in the surf, 65%.
