Cough Still They Pray on 2LP
Cough return with their first album in over five years. Produced by Electric Wizard's Jus Oborn and recorded by Oborn and Windhand's Garrett Morris, Still They Pray is the kind of monolithic cosmic doom that will take the listener to the heights of despair and the bottom of the abyss. With Still They Pray, Cough summon psychedelic feedback-driven melodies just to deconstruct them to their core. This is easily Cough at their most focused: pessimistic riffs and tortured grooves collide in melodic agony alongside a hallucinogenic blend of harsh and clean incantations, crushing and cathartic yet utterly mesmerizing. Step through the gates of madness and stare into the void.
