Virginia's Cough, a 4-man Doom outfit, is back with their 2nd full-length, Ritual Abuse. The album's overall sound is pretty typical of stoner doom, but it's overall quality isn't quite as typical. The vocals go back and forth between a more traditional stoner doom style, and a pained clean style. Definitely worth a shot for any fan of the genre.
