I find the lack of any Saint Vitus discussion irritating.
When it came to 80's Doom, Vitus had it fucking made, both the Scott Reagers and Wino periods.
Their S/T and Born Too Late are two of the most essential Doom albums ever.
And of course, Dave Chandler is right up there with the other great doom axemen Tony Iommi, Victor Griffin and Garry Jennings.

Havent listened to them in a long while. Great doom though, one of the best of its kind. May well give em another listen.
I was bad with usernames at age 12. Ah woe.

Essential trad. doom, love 'em. Man, the old-school doom is addicting, I can't get enough of it. Metal at its purest.

Born Too Late is great.

Good shit, anyone ever hear Grief's cover of Angry Man? I've never heard the original (only got Born Too Late) but sounds like a real good song.

^I never heard it.

Vitus is great though, probably my fav. traditional doom band, next to Sabbath and Witchfinder.

Vitus owns as do all of Wino's other bands...close to the best sabbath-influenced bands ever.

Saint Vitus, great band, easiliy one of my all-time non-death/grind faves.
My fav album is Die Healing, great tone. Cool riffs. What else do you want

I wouldn't say that Vitus were Wino's band in the same way that The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan and Hidden Hand are/were, as they had two other singers as well as him, and he wasn't a founding member.

Sorry let me rephrase ...Every band with Wino owns....

Been blasting Hallows Victim and Mournful Cries a ton,probably my favorite two Doom album.Everything is done so perfectly,i find they really have a vibe unlike any other band. So gritty and real,not to mention the fuzzed up wailing solos give me a hard on!

Acid probably makes you feel less like a hedonistic raver piece of trash, too.

I got Mournful Cries on vinyl a while ago because I was looking into expanding both my doom and vinyl collection, but I was pretty disappointed to be honest. It's ok, but nothing out of this world.

Quite simply one of the greatest bands to ever grace metal. No frills, stripped down brilliance. Hail!

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

Definitely man. Wino's vocals are just too good, and the riffs and solos, and slow, simple drumming are perfect. Saint Vitus are the best traditional doom metal band after the masters of doom, Black Sabbath.

It almost seems wrong when you post things like that without a beard.


EDIT: Just picked up Born Too Late, have yet to listen to it though. It's all new to me!

you've never listened to Vitus before Sev? or just that album?

YES.

^I love both In the Rectory and EDM, but there's just something so heartfelt, gut-wrenching about Vitus with Wino...

severed, you disappoint me once again. So yeah I just got the original press of the S/T, V and Die Healing a couple weeks back. I can't wait until I get around to listening to them properly. Dying Inside is easily my favorite Vitus tune so far.

Does anyone else like the vocalist on the debut/Die Healing more than Wino?

Wino is great, but that guy (can't remember the last name, but also a Scott) sounds like he's insane most of the time. So dramatic. It should sound cheesy, and it does, but he does that type of vocals so well.

Fair enough,both great albums.I just love how gritty Saint Vitus are,something about their style almost seems to have that punky attitude to me that totally hits the spot.As far as comparing Wino to Reagers i'de say their is no point,Wino has that manly biker sound while Scoot had that psychotic,dramatic style that sounds great.I just like that there is some diversity so i can enjoy the bands different sounds more.

Dammit... R.I.P.


I still find the self-titled to be the ultimate Saint Vitus album, though they haven't released a single bad record.
