In memory of the passing of singer Eric Wagner of Trouble and the Skull in late 2021, we turn this week to the fundamental power of doom metal for a day of reckoning with Black Sabbath, Cathedral, Candlemass, the Obsessed, Pentagram, Om, Reverend Bizarre, and more. Keep it slow, tune low, and know your Roots!
