So remember that request thing I set up? Where I had people suggest a theme and I do a post (or two or three) relating to the theme? Well, someone really wanted some doom metal, but since it's a theme-based requesting, I decided to use something doom related. Now doing a doom metal song would be cheating.

Instead I'm doing a Motorhead-esc, ball kicking, motorcycle ridin', booze drinking, sleazy, speedy heavy metal song featuring Shagrath from Dimmu Borgir and has the word "doom" in the title! Oh man this is some good stuff! Gritty guitars, fast drumming, snarling vocals is what this band is all about. This is the type of music you'd blast as you drive down the highway on the way to nowhere in particular. Actually this song is about that specifically, just on the road. Also, picking up girls along the way and drinking beer. The riffs are spot on for this style and they are in your face while being infectious. The whole thing is just well done and strong. I must admit, I didn't think Shagrath had it in him to do some good ol' fashioned rock and rolling metal. The lead vocalist has a gruff sound that works awesomely with this style. The band just slices through this song like butter! Perfectly "doom" I gotta say hehe. Highly recommended to the bad ass road tripper!
