Divine Eve - Vengeful and Obstinate (Ibex Moon, 2010)



Divine Eve's Vengeful and Obstinate is a three-way cross between Entombed, Motorhead and Cathedral. More technically adept than most doom metal, it alternates between two-chord riffs that are pure surging rhythm and longer, plodding, doom riffs that reduce your soul to ash. On top of the thunderous doom  melodic guitar leads both echo and play with the melodies of those long riffs, opening up the sonic space of the album to more possibility.
