Saint Vitus - Die Healing (Re-issue) (Black) (LP)
From the very opening riff of "Dark World" I knew I had spent my dough wisely. Full of thick, slow, syrupy riffs this platter creeps along like heavy morning fog. Scott Reagers bizzare vocals drip out of the woofers like dew. A sweet sound indeed. The tight rythym of bassist Mark Adams and drummer Armando Acosta provide the perfect groove for Dave Chandlers' searing guitar leads. By the time the last track "Just Another Notch" came up, I had become totally hooked on these guys. This album was everything I had been looking for at the time. It still finds it way to the top of my stack quite often still to this day.
