N2MB If you're after the sensation that impending doom is on the rise, while your mind spirals down into the darkness and have it all punctuated by raw, drawn out screams of despair then look no further. Cough will hand deliver it to you in a skull packed with roaches. Favorite track: Ritual Abuse.

S810 This album makes my weiner sad. But not in a bad way. There are sufficient amounts of both doom and gloom to make my donger droop, which hasn't happened in a while. Favorite track: Crooked Spine.

about

Richmond’s COUGH delivers thoroughly massive, psychedelic doom on their aptly titled Relapse debut ‘Ritual Abuse’. The albums five epic tracks are impenetrable walls of sludge; at points suffocating and claustrophobic, at others warped and hallucinogenic. ‘Ritual Abuse’ is an impressive monolith of sound and volume, and one of the finest moments yet of 21st century doom.

Track Name: Crippled Wizard
A barren wasteland
Desolate plains
Charging through madness
Living in pain
Crippled and broken
Cast down in shame
Drowning in misery
Eternal rain

Broken throne
Dying alone

His words forgotten
His way ignored
Crawling onwards
Lost in time
The death of ancients
His time has passed
unblessed water
Bring tears to ash

Broken throne
Dying alone
Track Name: Crooked Spine
Entangled in snares
A deadly desire
That feeds on your heart
Though it keeps you alive

Who will save you now?
Who will cast you out?

A wretch like my own
A crooked spine
Can you help me to mend
My feeble mind
