Review : DEMON LUNG – ‘The Hundredth Name’

DOOM, I say — Las Vegas DOOM! Demon Lung are sole purveyors of said genre, and goddammit, they already upped the ante. The Hundredth Name takes the rough-hewn blueprint from last year’s Pareidolia EP and expands into a full-on concept album about Satan’s spawn assembling the devil’s bible to reverse-speak God’s name and undo all of that fine Lordly work.
