VARIOUS ARTISTS  I Am Vengeance (OST)  CD   (Meteor City)   8.00
ADD TO CART

This official soundtrack to the psychedelic indie-splatter film I Am Vengeance features a smorgasboard of doom metal and stoner rock sandwiched between dialogue clips from the film and pieces from the original score. I haven't seen the movie itself, but apparently low-budget underground director Richard R. Anasky drew his inspiration for this movie from both 80's slasher flicks AND classic 80's doom metal (specifically, Wichfinder General, according to the liner notes and the film's IMDB page). Sounds pretty rad to me. As a compilation of Sabbathian doom rock, this is pretty extensive: the filmmaker teamed up with Meteor City to assemble a massive lineup, including Lowrider, Doomsday Gouvernment, Blood Farmers, Sheavy, Count Raven, Eternal Elysium, The QUill, Space Probe Taurus, Las Cruces, The Awesome Machine, and many others. There is a TON of Sabbath worship going on here, with both Count Raven and Doomsday Gouvernment winning the "sounds most like Ozzy" award, and the more uptempo stuff has that post-grunge, stoner rock sound that Man's Ruin branded back around the turn of the decade. All of the songs are exclusive to the compilation, except for the Blood Farmers track "Bullet In My Head", which originally appeared on their out-of-print Hellhound debut; and Sheavy's "Sea Of Tomorrow", which appeared on their also-out-of-print debut Blue Sky Mind. Standout tracks include the massive psych-sludge of Japan's Eternal Elysium, and Count Raven's admittedly awesomely goofy Sabbath homage. The booklet contains extensive liner notes, lyrics, film stills, and commentary by the film's director/creator Richard R. Anasky.
