Will to Mangle

2002 release and their second album. There would be a nine year gap before the next full length was released.  Someone somewhere argues that this one of the best sludge/stoner doom records ever made. Not sure about that but it is very good.  Sabbath are clearly a distant influence but after that it becomes a hellacious noise with the vocals buried deep in a reverb cave somewhere, becoming an ambient cipher rather than a way of delivering a message, and musically things slowed down to an almost Swans like pace at times.  It’s all fuzz, feedback and excess for the most part.
