Subject: 6: מזמור and Thou - Myopia From: .jh Date: 2022-12-20T13:30:00Z Tags: music blog best\ of best\ of\ 2022 מזמור\ and Thou Myopia 2022 ![Myopia](/gfx/1035308.jpg) As a longtime fan of מזמור but unfamiliar with Thou (sludge has really never been an interest) I wasn't sure what to expect here, but turns out it's quite excellent. The album starts out with a song that to my ears could have come off of a מזמור album, having that sharp riffing, the raving vocals (they do swap back and forth between the vocalists something which also turns out to work remarkably well) but also having a crushing heft to it which I can only assume we can credit Thou for. I only tend to like funeral doom, I find much of what is called doom too light and cheery, now מזמור have always to me been a blackmetal / doom hybrid, always too fast to be considered funeral doom but oozing misery and despair. This continues here and it's glorious, I'm sure this collaboration was a one off, but I'm hoping there may be more someday. [מזמור on Encyclopaedia Metallum]( [Thou on Encyclopaedia Metallum]( ---
