Album Review

They've earned quite a lot of comparisons to Black Sabbath thus far, but perhaps a more fitting comparison to the heavy riffing trio Stinking Lizaveta is latter-day Black Flag (especially the Henry Rollins-less release, The Process of Weeding Out). On their fifth release overall, 2007's Scream of the Iron Iconoclast, the group has once again hooked up with producer Steve Albini, and the result is undeniably mighty hard rock that is bound to attract both stoner and doom metal fans.

The Philadelphia trio formed in 1994 when guitar player Yanni Papadopoulos and drummer Cheshire Agusta recruited Yanni's brother,...
