Uzala

Much like Jex Thoth, Witch Mountain, Sabbath Assembly or Windhand, Uzala's doom takes advantage of soaring and sorrowful female vocals to reach back to doom metal's roots in the blues. While guitarist/vocalist Darcy Nutt's haunting vocals and melodicism are compelling enough to keep Uzala's new-vintage sound interesting, the band throws a wrench into the preceedings by counter-balancing those vocals with the death-grunts of guitarist Chad Remains. Simple yet well-executed songwriting and riffs keep the band's debut in a fresh Sabbath-ian light, never retreading well-travelled paths or falling into self-parody.

Uzala's self-titled debut features the knob-twiddling skills of Blake Green (Wolvserpent) and you can stream all of it for the first time below...

No online release of this album?

I don't understand bands who insist on clinging to old world models of music distribution. It's cool that they're letting this stream over here, but the album should be available on their Bandcamp page.

Also, releasing a Cassette-Only album with bonus tracks is beyond stupid. Stop doing niche, hipster type crap.

I can never understand if bands want their music heard by as many people as possible, or if they simply worry more about their cred with lame journalists.

I will have to say this is usually a appropriately thought draft that basically includes value in the individuals who read through it
