Purveyors of doom metal rejoice: the seminal American doom metal troupe Saint Vitus has re-released its live offering. Simply titled LIVE, this 11-track collection was recorded in Germany during the bandís 1989 tour, and packs all of Saint Vitusí infamous lethargic fury. Weeping guitars, droning rhythms, and raspy vocals all played big in the Saint Vitus playbook, and this live disc allows these elements to shine just as bright as a studio album, with fuzzy guitar freakouts and off-the-cuff heavy jams intertwined for the true live music experience. If you know of them, pick this up. If you donít, this live disc is a fine place to start.
