Gorilla Monsoon - Extermination Hammer

This is a stoner/doom band that infuses sludge and southern elements in their brand of music manufactured in Germany. Their music is the heavy down tuned goodness backed by influences ranging from traditional doom metal to a genre that tilts more towards late 90's rock.

Think of this as a blend of Black Sabbath, Crowbar, Corrosion Of Conformity and Dozer. Now, this hardcore fans of doom may not like this a lot because it seems at times that the band tries to commercialize doom metal for creating a blend of genres in a way that will appease to the masses, ruining the essence of doom metal by giving the audience what they want rather than putting out what they want and gathering fans, but yes it's quality and catchy tunes and vocals cannot be questioned.

"Her name was Jeniffer, she was a 50$ whore, who wanted more." ~ Yeah this isn't actually very poetic, but still makes for an entertaining listen.
