Sometimes it's best to begin at the end.
Unreleased Volume 2 was the 37th and final release in the 20-year career of the enigmatic, eccentric, virtuosic Italian experimentalist and unibrow-wielding Doom genius known as Paul Chain. Well, sort of.
Anyway, a compilation of demo songs, split tracks, and other rarities, it contains some of his most rocking work- from the excellent 20 minute(!) Iommi-ish intro guitar jam "Traffic Lights", to tracks like "Nibiru Dawn" and "Bloodwing" where he is accompanied by fellow Doom Legend Scott "Wino" Weinrich, to the wholly improvised, awesomely spacey ending track.
Give this a listen and be blown away.
...Yeah, he definitely needs to cut out this Paul Cat business and pick up the cross-itar again.
