    At least that's what I think. You be the judge:

    (maybe listen with the video open in another tab if you're offended by blood, gore, and nearly naked women - fair warning)

    Been listening to these guys for a minute. I get it but nah, please no Beatles comparison, we already know Ozzy was a huge sucker for them--so Sabbath is actually Beetles proto-doom core.

    They supported Sabbath a few years ago too.

    The similarities are that the Beatles played chords and it looks like these guys do also.

    Anything melodic and catchy is gonna get compared to the lads eventually. I still like them anyway.

    One of my all-time favourite bands. I think it's a hybrid of Sabbath, The Alice Cooper Band and The Beatles. I can definitely hear the psychedelic Lennon influences.

    This is the one I could live on if it were their only output:

    The guitar reminds me more of the scorpions.

    Worst album cover! (They had a few other doozies)

    This one sounds like it has a sinister Billy Preston on the keys.

    I had tickets to see them right before COVID hit. Such a bummer. They're one of my favorite bands on earth. I've got almost everything they've done on vinyl.

    And my Beatles comparison has really more to do with Kevin Starr's vocals than anything else. He's like the "Evil John Lennon" to Glenn Danzig's "Evil Elvis." He's a massive Peter Green fan too, and the reason I got turned on to Peter Green.

    Would that have been your first time seeing them?

    Yep. "Bummed" is a gigantic understatement.

    Incredible act. I saw them with Graveyard in 2018.

    Sweet, they’re another killer live act. I saw UA in 2014 at their first show in the states then again that fall with Danava. Kinda bummed I skipped the tour with King Diamond.

    Still listening as I type this, but this is fantastic. I've never heard of these guys.

    They’re not a band I listen to all the time, but they’re a band I try to go see whenever I get a chance.
