Doom Snake Cult : " Love Sorrow Doom"
By the time we get to "Doom" I fin the album fading into the back ground with little hope of recapturing my attention. We have a bunch or recycled Celtic Frosts riff and little in the way of song writing. I have ton of drugs in my day , but I do not hear any of the psychedelia that is supposed to be here aside from some effects in the intros. I even give "Frozen Doll Land" another listen to hear if I missed something. I like the sluggish beginning then the song goes sideways. "Sorrow" is an improvement, the syncopation varies and gives the song more depth and groove.One thing about this album is the song title always seems to be growled where the chorus should be in a rather juvenile manner that's how I though songs should be written in the 7th grade. In the 7th grade I also liked Impaler's "If We Had Brains We'd Be Dangerous" album, which this album reminds me of in some ways. Since there was no such thing as the internet when I was in the 7th grade I tended to buy albums with cool covers so they would have suckered me in on this one. While they get credit for not going the way of current bandwagons the songs didn't demand my ear consistently but enough to earn a 6.
