8: Lycus - Tempest

Tempest I don't recall how I came across Lycus, but I'm quite happy I did, while my preference tends to be for harsher funeral doom, this is a decent doom album in a year which saw few doom releases (or perhaps in which I saw few doom releases). Having perhaps the best artwork of the year certainly did not hurt either. With three songs clocking in at a just over 40 minutes gives you an idea of what you're in for, then realize that the last track is an impressive 20 plus minutes. If you're in the mood for a good doom album with a splash of black metal this is your release.
