Full Album Stream: Saint Vitus’ “Live Vol. 2” Will Bring Misery of the Best/Worst Sort to Your Day

For those not born too late (couldn’t, just couldn’t resist) St. Vitus’ classic 1986 full-length of that same title stands out as bastion of the true doom among a sea of speed-obsessed thrash and thrash-influenced albums. For a point of comparison, consider the classic releases from the same year: Slayer, Metallica, Sodom, Megadeth, Sepultura, Kreator, Destruction, etc. etc. However, we know that you probably know all about this quintessential, anguish-ridden classic, (especially if you caught Born Too Late’s induction into the Hall of Fame back in the March 2010 issue) so we’ll get to the part that qualifies as news here. 

On September 23rd, Season of Mist will be releasing Live Vol. 2, an 11-song, single-pressing only set of Wino-fronted St. Vitus doom excellence from 2013, featuring the Lillie: F-65 lineup pounding through classics in top, depression-inducing form. The album, which is available for pre-order now, will be pressed in digipak, digipak with bonus CD, gatefold double vinyl, and triple gatefold vinyl with bonus album options. And if you are unsure of the weightiness of this one, we’ve got the complete stream for you here. Turn your happy Tuesday into a soul-crushing remembrance of the darker side below, and check the tour dates after to see when you can replicate the experience in the live.
