Villainy: The View from My Ivory Tower (2014)
The music is an unholy combination of doom, black, and crust. The opening track crawls out of the gate with the pace of a snail slinking to its demise. The pace increases to a more of a deathly gallop before returning to the dirge. The song definitely has a Sabbathian feel to it, despite the more modern influences.
The second track is a much more fast-paced song that sounds like Motorhead playing Venom. As a big fan of groups like Wastelander and Thargos, this song really catches my interest. If this is what the rest of Villainy's material sounds like, I am all in.
Unfortunately this is just a two-song EP, but it definitely piqued my curiosity to check out more by Villainy.
