One of the finer and heavier Sab tributes...

"This is the domestic version of Earache's tribute to Sabbath, and if you are a fan of Earache records you realize that the label's legendary roster of extreme metal and grindcore were the very darkest and most visceral proponents of the shadowed side of music that Iommi and co. brought forth in the early 70's. Thus it is no surprise at all that this cd represents some of the hardest hitting as well as most original recreations of Sabbath on record. Cathedral, who is Sab Incarnate of the 90's and whom even won over Iommi significantly enough to gain a solo from him on one their song "Utopian Blaster," lead the pack here, straight out of the gate with the beginning and ending pieces on this record-- both beautiful and surreal dark masterpieces. Sleep do a wonderfully over-codeined version of "Snowblind" and and Fudge Tunnel will rip your face off with their grunge metal performance of-- get this!-- "Changes." (!) Godflesh and Pitch Shifter add some industrial metal to the mix, with Godflesh's inspired choice of Gillan-era Sabbath winning most spooky metal cover ever, complete with tolling bells. Scorn reconstructs "The Wizard" into a dark dub trip-hop that is superb, and OLD's eerie, spacy synthwork in their retooling of "Who Are You" has to be heard. Perhaps the only cover that doesn't fully work is Ultraviolence's "Paranoid" which forsakes the crunch rock fuzz of the original for hard hyper techno that comes close to gabber, but even then the reason for the failure isn't the effort or the quality factor, just that it's so strange a listen. From start to "miserable" end this is one impressive lineup and some equally impressive rock-werk. Without a doubt a most fearless and enigmatic brew... note: the import Japanese version includes Catherdral's "Shockwave" and Cadaver's "Sweet Leaf," left off here."
5 FOR CATHEDRAL!!!!!

"I dont think I paid more than 7$ for this back in the day!

The CATHEDRAL song's are AWESOME!! why these were not added to make a re-relase of FOREST is beyond me!! the Brutal Truth one is good,Confessor is good, sleep is ok, godlfesh is ok, rest can be SKIPPED!!

CADAVER are suppossed to be on here with ''sweet leaf'' but for some reason they arent on it?
