Album Of The Day-Stinking Lizaveta-"Scream Of The Iron Iconoclast" (2007)

The Album Of The Day is "Scream Of The Iron Iconoclast" by Stinking Lizaveta.


They've earned quite a lot of comparisons to Black Sabbath thus far, but perhaps a more fitting comparison to the heavy riffing trio Stinking Lizaveta is latter day Black Flag (especially the Henry Rollins-less release, The Process of Weeding Out). On their fifth release overall, 2007's ‘Scream of the Iron Iconoclast,' the group has once again hooked up with producer Steve Albini, and the result is undeniably mighty hard rock — that is bound to attract both stoner and doom metal fans. On such selections as the title track and "Yagan's Head," Yanni Papdopoulos will definitely earn comparisons to the great Greg Ginn — with his overabundance of never-ending chromatic guitar work. But as a band, Stinking Lizaveta is built to work best as a unit, as evidenced by the slow crawlers "Willie Nelson (Tired of the War)" and "Requiem for a Rock Band," while elsewhere, Metallica-esque riffing turns up on "Indomitable Will." For doom rock totally devoid of predictable "the world is ending" lyrics (or of any lyrics, for that matter) - and with an extra emphasis on musical mood shifting - ‘Scream of the Iron Iconoclast' is recommended.
