I just stumbled onto this as I was looking for that music video of the
Shadow of the Torturer "Filk" song. I can't remember the singer's name...

Not sure if this has been shared here, but there is a Seattle WA Doom
Metal band called Shadow of the Torturer.


I'm halfway through Cities of the Damned.  I love this kinda shit.
File under: Acquired Taste
Sub-Category: If you don't get it by now, you never will...

No novel ideas on display, but it's pretty satisfying if you like this
sort of depressive anti social stuff from the lowest sub-genre of heavy
metal. Sounds like a cross between something like Burning Witch and Om.
Not as torturous as Burning Witch though, which is a plus in my book.
Spare me from those excruciations.

...I have no idea what the lyrical content is. Your guess is as good as mine.
