cough Sigillum Luciferi (double LP, £29.75)label: forcefield
Cough is the name of a Richmond band that plays monstrously slow doom with a groove. Sigillum Luciferi is a blunt force sludge covered behemoth in the proud tradition of Eyehategod and Electric Wizard. Cough's got nothing new on the genre, but what they do, they do so effectively that it doesn't matter. The riffs are good and memorable. Eyehategod toyed with faster songs at times, but Cough keeps it slow throughout. Now that doom has largely moved on to artier pastures it's nice to hear something raw and dirty like this, more at home in the welfare line then the art gallery.
