The world lost an amazing musician when Eric Wagner passed away, and this album is but a testament to his songwriting/singing prowess. Then we have the riffs, the thunderous low end of the bass, and drums that sound like they were played using Thor's mighty Mjolnir!!
Favorite track: Ravenswood.
Featuring vocalist Eric Wagner and bassist Ron Holzner, formerly of metal legends Trouble, THE SKULL creates classic Sabbathian doom with a psych-tinged metal vision. The respected group's sophomore full-length, 'The Endless Road Turns Dark', benefits greatly from the pedigree and experience of the band’s members and pushes authentic, old-school metal to heavier and more foreboding places, fueled by burly riffing, metallic groove and a crushing punch. Ethereal and wonderfully moody with a heart of heavy metal beating at its center, the record delivers definitive doom metal full of powerful builds and mesmerizing dynamic range. More than a mere throwback, 'The Endless Road Turns Dark' is the work of a band that respects their fans, understands their own history, and still has their ears open to the current doom metal landscape. A wicked exercise in heavy metal majesty, 'The Endless Road Turns Dark'plays like a natural extension of the musician's exemplary work during their 20-plus years with Trouble and cements The Skull as modern-day doom metal royalty.

Hard to pick between Free the Witch and Lady Lucifer as best song. The lyrics, the energy, the riffs all grab your attention like a hammer to the head and never let go. Can't wait to see what's next. Hope they stick with the formula. Sabbath Hanks
