Released: Jan 1984
Along with Saint Vitus' records, Trouble's 1984 debut is often cited as the first doom metal release. Taking the slow trudge of classic Sabbath and vocal cues from Rob Halford, Psalm 9 links up the early days of metal and the stoner and doom explosions of the '90s and '00s. A slight whiff of psychedelia also informs the economic, highly dramatic tunes, but it's the overall heaviness of "Revelation (Life or Death)" and opener "The Tempter" that Sleep fans want to check out first. A cover of Cream's "Tales of Brave Ulysses" well illustrates the effect that band had on heavy metal. Trouble - Psalm 9 2006-02-01
