Cough

Ritual Abuse (Relapse)

Death rattle magna cum laude, Cough pulverizes doom-crawls through black holes of distortion and fundamental frequencies of the down-tuned. Lost planet landscaping ("Crippled Wizard") and glacial manifest destiny ("Crooked Spine"), with black metal and high priest vox, smash atoms on 12 minutes of "A Year in Suffering." These Richmond, Va., stone masons also huff Lucifer's 12-minute ill-wind ("Mind Collapse). Tussionex for that Cough? Try Sludgeonex. (Sat., 8pm, Scoot Inn)
