Influential Los Angeles-based doom metal group Saint Vitus was formed in 1979, with Black Sabbath and Black Flag as noteworthy references. Seventh album 'C.O.D.,' from 1992, made former Count Raven frontman Christian Lindersson lead vocalist, the guitars now texturally layered, and the drums bathed in heavy reverb, hearkening older styles of metal.
Overall, it's a testament to underachieves and burnouts everywhere, directly addressing their fans as the 'Children Of Doom' of the title. This is an underrated album for all discerning doom metal lovers, and unmissable for those who seek a fuller understanding of Saint Vitus' progression.
Limited to 500 copies on red vinyl including obi strip.
