”Still They Pray” by Cough was trully one of the most anticipated albums of 2016. Personally, yes, i was quite eager to listen to this album. Thus i did. For those of you who don’t know let me just state that Cough is a four piece band from the United States. They’ ve been in the game for more than ten years. First ever Cough album i listened to was ”Ritual Abuse”. That album actually got me into Cough.
So ”Still They Pray”, which was released this June, is Cough’s new album. It was actually produced by Jus Oborn. Eight songs are included in this album. The band’s music is of course heavy as hell. I think it’s one of those albums that you have to experience. I mean you don’t just listen to it. You need to feel the despair and the haunting sense that this dirge produces. Once again it feels like you’ re being devoured by the void. Check out songs like ”Masters of Torture” and you’ ll see what i’m saying here. It’s definitely my favorite song from this album. It incorporates everything you love about heavy music: great riffs, vocals that cry nothing less than pure hate and agony. Rest assure though this goes for the rest of the songs as well.
I think the band delivered. ”Still They Pray” is a great album. Sludge/ Doom metal fans are gonna love it. Here are some links where you can also listen to ”Still They Pray”:
