Heaviest Metallist 6 - Slomatics II

(in which a lapsed metalhead seeks the heaviest metal song ever - recommendations are welcome)

Spit 7"

All hail the riff. Because it's all about the almighty riff. Strip heavy metal down to its essence and that's really all there is. The more I listen to Slomatics the more I realize that they have learned this essential truth about the nature of the universe, existence, reality and whatnot. They specialize in creating riffs Tony Iommi might have come up with if he was 400-feet tall - gargantuan, bottom-heavy riffs that have the power to destroy mountains and turn the citizenry into shrieking, fleeing masses. And I mean that in a good way.
