Wulfhound (2019)
Crank this to 9.3 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Doom
Sounds Like: Rezn, Acid King, Monolord
The soft blue toned ominous forest on the cover first had us guessing black metal or doom from Germany. This was further emphasized amongst the spelling and font selection of the band.

The debut album from Pamplona, Spain natives, Thursdays Pussy Dogs, had us intrigued by the color scheme album cover and beyond bizarre band name.
