Still They Pray by Cough

Cough provide no-nonsense psychedelic doom, cutting straight to the chase with monolithic tar-black riffs. The howled vocals sound good and desolate too: it's no surprise that members of Electric Wizard and Windhand were involved in its creation. Still They Pray, the group’s first album in half a decade, is released by Relapse.

8/10 gbar 6th March 2017

Though it’s been six years since the release of Ritual Abuse, the time away hasn’t altered Cough’s mission statement. Much like their sister band Windhand, Electric Wizard’s influence is felt throughout this album’s droning tempos, drawn out song lengths, and lyrics reeking of pain and misanthropy. The fact that Jus Oborn himself is on production duties here gives it more legitimacy than your typical pretender. But when compared to their previous two albums, Still They Pray may be their most melodic effort yet. This is most evident with the closing title track, an acoustic number that still manages to be pretty ominous. The traditional doom songs also exercise cleaner performances and memorable vocal lines with “Dead Among The Roses” and the mournful “Let It Bleed” as particular standouts.
