This album came as a revelation to me in high school, absorbed as I was in sorting through the metal bins at record shops in the early 80's, searching for the latest Venom, Maiden, or Frost release. From the gothic script of the logo on the black front cover to the black and white band photo on the back, this release portrays a decidedly retro look. I had friends who were into punk, so I felt adventurous picking up something from SST. Upon playing the album, I laughed aloud at the irony of accidentally buying the one true heavy metal release from the label! This is a garage version of 1970-72 Ozzy-era Black Sabbath with a voice that I can only compare to the singer in Sir Lord Baltimore. Blown tube-amps and, except for the title track, super echoey, tortured slow songs comprise the sound and direction of Saint Vitus's debut. I have heard the band's other releases, and they are all solid (with the possible exception of the 'Children of Doom' album), but the debut is their best because, to my ears, the vocals of their second vocalist Wino drift periously close to grunge, and Vitus's original singer Scott Reager never again sounded as mournful and eerie as he does here. One highlight of the album is the 'two glass bottles clinking together' sound on one track that reminds me of the Coney Island climax from the film 'The Warriors'. I have never seen this album lauded in the metal press; in fact, if Vitus is mentioned at all anymore, it is in connection with the career of Wino Weinrich, who doe not appear on this album. Saint Vitus's debut remains overlooked.

There are so many doom/stoner/sludge/funeral, and whatever other billion terms there are for slow metal, bands that it's hard to sort through what's good and what's crap. Almost every doom release touts that it's like Sabbath stepped into a time machine but that's rarely the case, but here we get an enjoyable early Sabbath-esque album. It should be understood that the music on this disc is fairly old material, Saint Vitus released a rehearsal tape under the name Tyrant in either 78 or 79, which had songs from this self titled release as well as songs from Hallow's Victim. With their formation in the late 70's, it's not hard to see why they captured the depressed mood of the first Sabbath album, without the blues rock influence, so well, there really wasn't anything else around to ruin their vision. A couple things I like about St. Vitus, besides their music, is that they aren't overly evil, they don't put off a corny vibe that so many doom bands bring to the table, they also don't talk about hitting the bong every other line, which again is refreshing. On the other hand, St. Vitus were not a Christian band, as I've read a few people saying, I've never read anything that has led me to believe this. I've read Chandler (guitar) say that they didn't want to be overly evil but never anything about them being Christian...so back off religious nuts, you can't have our metal!

The reviewer under me hit the nail on the head, when it comes to the vocal department Reagers manages to be completely original and amazing at the same time. Wino, who joined the band on either the Thirsty And Miserable 12" EP or Born Too Late (not sure what came out first), does sound a little cheesy, like a grunge singer.

I bought this strictly going by Amazon's suggestions from other cds I've been ordering recently.
I did expect I'd be hearing Scott 'Wino' Weinrich on this cd for whatever reason...I'm a big fan of Spirit Caravan and The Obsessed, plus I have a recently released cd from Saint Vitus with Wino singing on it.
But this recording is Vitus' 1st and has the original singer before Wino.
Slightly disappointed...but a competent album nonetheless. 4 stars for good ol stoner rock!
