I Hate Myself 10 Songs
A good mix of silly and fun songs and ones that are more serious and shit. When the lyricist isn't turning teenage angst and cynicism to soap opera melodrama he writes some good lines that are relatable and shit (i.e. the first verse in "caught in a flood..."). It's much better than a lot of other similar bands who take themselves far more serious than their shitty poetry should allow. 3.6 out of 5 - FINAL RATING

Mountain Witch Scythe and Dead Horse
Mountain Witch are a doom metal band from Germany that's been around for a couple of years. They play loud distorted riffs nice and slow and every now and then you'll hear some German guy mumble, shout, or moan something or another. It's nothing new or relevatory but who cares Mountain Witch knows what they're doing and they do that shit well. Scythe and Dead Horse will please any fan of doom. A perfect soundtrack for your postcoital existential angst.
