A brand new 12" split which just came out, featuring Fister and The Lion's Daughter. First of all, I loved the artwork (created by and I would check this release only for that even if I didn't have any further info.
It contains 7 tracks, three by Fister and four by The Lion's Daughter. Fister was mentioned before in Stoned Sun Vibrations, when they released "Bronsonic" (a fine piece of sludge/doom). So, in this split I found all the things I liked about them. Thick and swampish sludge with monolithic riffs violating your brain cells. Add some muddy raw vocals and a bass tuned as bottom as the depths of hell and you have Fister.
Now as for The Lion's Daughter, I didn't have the chance to hear them since now so it's my first contact with their work. As Fister, they're from St.Louis Missouri and from what I found they have one more release, a cassette titled "Forgotten Masters". I have to say that I liked them even if they aren't in my usual kind of listenings. Faster, more up-tempo and aggressive from Fister but raw, heavy and muddy as well. They're moving in crust paths with black metal influences (especially in the guitar's riffs). They fit me at all and surely I'll have them in mind from now on.
Overall, it's an awesome release that fans of heavy sound should not miss. The perfect soundtrack for human's savage insticts. Cheers!
