Album Review

With the arrival of the Ghetto Angel EP, in early 2008, North Carolina sludge/doom troupe Sourvein reaffirms not only their predilection for short form releases (having issued several split singles in a row, yet no full album since 2002), but also their loose grasp on the concept of time. After all, Ghetto Angel is the belated second installment of a proposed three-EP sequence begun with 2005's Emerald Vulture, so the notion that an album's worth of Sourvein material may not be available until 2011 surely won't make the band's fans very happy.

But in the early 2000s, Sourvein was combining Black Sabbath-minded guitar riffs with a death metal-ish vocal style. Singer T-Roy Medlin (formerly of Buzzov-En) was...
