SONS OF TONATIUH, “PARADE OF SORROW” ALBUM REVIEW!

Sons of TonatiuhHailing from Atlanta, this 3 member band takes doom metal to a new low.  And….this is a good thing!  You can call it doom, sludge, crust/punk, stoner metal, or whatever you want- Sons of Tonatiuh kicks ass.  The riffs and guitar sounds bring back a triumphant Black Sabbath sound, combine it with Eyehategod and Weedeater and then churn it over into their own sound.  Sons of Tonatiuh (pronounced “Sons of Tahn-ah-tea-ah”) are starting their own revolution with a wall of doom that could start WWIII.

“Season of Pills” is easily my favorite track.  The song starts out in high gear-grinds to a slow, sludgy tempo, then kicks it back into full force.  Great vocals and guitar tones too!

One by One” is also a favorite.  Haunting, screaming vocals combined with a WALL of a riff will pick you up and slam you down repeatedly!

If you are a Black Sabbath, Eyehategod, Weedeater, or even a Down fan, you will get into this album.  It has a heaviness of it’s own.  The riffs will get stuck in your head.  You will be caught headbanging at work listening to this.  Trust me on this one!

4/5 stars
