There's no reason why the pro-Christianity angle of “Golgotha,” the lead track on The Last Supper's self titled debut, should catch anyone off guard. After all, acts like Trouble and Place of Skulls have proven you can play doom and not resort to the usual topics of war, death, and destruction. The latter's a good reference point, because this German traditional doom band is cut from the same cloth. The album's 13 songs are a collection of mid-tempo, doomy grooves that are coated in a fog of melancholy. Check out The Last Supper if you're looking to beef up your traditional doom collection. It's done with reverence, and it's done well.

I absolutely love the use of the organ. It really adds a lot of weight to the riffs (being that most of the album is mid-paced), but at the same time it's not prominent enough to totally dominate the album. It has everything...big intro riff into heavy jamming followed by some organ freakout to end it. If you are a fan of traditional doom pick this up. It's very old school, yet it has its own distinct sound.
