Fistula 

For a Better Tomorrow EP (Corley Music)

After a two-year hiatus, doom-metal merchant Fistula is back. The Akron band's bleak lyrics masterfully reinforce despair with first-rate stoner riffs and massive drumming, creating a huge sound that both hypnotizes and bludgeons. Three of the EP's four tracks begin like back-alley brawls between Khanate and the Melvins, then get slower, resulting in heavy and contagious gloom. Coming out of left field, the acoustic ballad "Friend of Mine" proves that a whisper can be scarier than a scream.
