Saint Vitus
V (Southern Lord Records)

By: Mike SOS

Saint Vitus, along with Trouble and The Obsessed, were the seminal American doom acts, dutifully holding the torch passed down by the mighty Black Sabbath. The re-release of the band's eight-track metal opus is like receiving an early Christmas present for stoners everywhere. The churning yet subtle grooves found on V are without question some of today's stoner rockers main influence from COC to Down to High on Fire, and to hear the incendiary Wino in the early years is a treat for all that worship heavy music. Laden with sludge and chock full of the sounds that have shaped metal music for over a decade, Southern Lord has done a fine job of bringing a band into the limelight and allowing an unsung musical group its just desserts.
