Conceived in the fertile metal underground of Richmond, VA circa 2005, COUGH have sought to be the heaviest band ever since their inception. The band takes inspiration from the most savage aspects of extreme music, from crushing doom metal and grimy sludge to early black metal.
After the independent 2007 release of their first EP, The Kingdom, COUGH quickly put out their first proper full-length, Sigillum
Luciferi (Forcefield Records, 2008). Recorded with acclaimed producer Sanford Parker (Minsk, Rwake, Pelican, Nachtmystium),
After a 5 year hiatus, COUGH return with their latest offering Still They Pray. Produced by Electric Wizard’s Jus Oborn and recorded by Oborn and Windhand’s Garrett Morris, Still They Pray is the kind of monolithic cosmic doom that will take the listener to the heights of despair and the bottom of the abyss. Just like the sleeping shoggoths of R’lyeh, sometimes the beast lies but it never dies.
Deadsmoke is an Italian doom sludge band that sounds like amplifiers buried in the deep, with down-tuned monolithic guitar riff scraping the soil down to the core of the earth.
Slow, hypnotic, dissonant cadences recall the eternal need for isolation and the atavistic fear of nothingness. Sub-frequencies corrode the one last trace of human cognition, apprehension and judgment.
Your soul is already burned, smoke is what remains.
Richmond, VA is home to so many killer bands and talented musicians that it's no wonder that basically every new band that forms down that way turns into a supergroup by default. Case in point: Sinister Haze is a metal/punk hybrid gone rogue, made up of members of Cough, Balaclava, and Dry Spell. The former's low-slung riffs and smoky atmosphere feature heavily in Sinister Haze thanks to vocalist and Cough guitarist Brandon Marcey, but there's also a cosmic fuck-ton of hollowed-out wails, psychedelia, and acid-washed rock'n'roll in there to keep spacier 'heads happy.
