Click on the Paypal button above to purchase a copy of And the Rest Will Surely Perish by Brooklyn doom outfit Kings Destroy. The cost is $10 for domestic American orders and $12 for international (you’ll recall last time it was $14). The album comes in a full jewel case with stunningly doomed artwork by Seldon Hunt and, in all honesty, I think it’s the best traditional doom record of the year.
You get your elements of Saint Vitus and Sabbath, but there’s a dirty rock edge to it too, some Church of Misery riffing and this badass ultra-groove that you just have to hear to understand. Sanford Parker did an amazing job bringing out the best in the band (the drum sound is unreal), and there are even some shades of the band’s collective NYHC pedigree in acts like Killing Time and Uppercut.
The first 20 orders come with a thank-you card. No bullshit. I bought thank-you cards, and I have them ready to go. They have a turtle on them. There were 300 discs pressed, and I have 100 to sell. You’ll note the purchase link is in the sidebar as well as above; I’ve kept two copies for myself, given one away and sold two already since putting that button live last night. 95 copies left to go out.
