[Suggestion] Okwaho - Okwaho

Okwaho - Okwaho
It's been almost 2,5 years since Okwaho released their first 3-track-demo and now they are back with their debut full album! It's heavy, it's low, it's slow, its sludgy, it's dark it's massive and it's angry, balancing between doom and sludge, with 'bluesy' attitude and the proper vocals. Highly recommended for fans of ultra bass sound, massive distortion and slow speeds.
