Faustcoven - Rising from Below the Earth (2008)

Genre: Black/Doom Metal
Country: Norway

Pulverizing, yet catchy listen from these Norwegian doom mongerers. The catchiness can be attributed to a distinct Sabbath influence on the guitar work, which is blended with cutting old school black metal undertones and a trudging bass creating a pummeling low end, while the vocals carry a sort of twisted combination between Tom G. Warrior, Black Cactus from Von and a death growl with a bit of a raspy edge as well. Strongly recommended for listeners of both of these genres.

Also, a stream of the title track from their upcoming album, Hellfire and Funeral Bells can be heard here.
