New Doom/Stoner Comp from Alternative Control: YOTC, Owl Maker, Eye of Nix..

Alternative Control is excited to announce that Seattle heavy music duo Year of the Cobra and UK doom outfit Kurokuma will contribute songs the Volume Doom compilation album, to be released on February 22nd.  The comp will open with YOTC's starkly beautiful track "The Descent" and close on a cliffhanger with Kurokuma's crushing "Dope Rider, Pt. 1."

Spotlighting artists that have been reviewed on the Connecticut-based music blog Alternative Control, Volume Doom features twelve songs representing an array of subgenres under the doom/stoner umbrella.  Blog editor and Owl Maker bassist Jessie May says, "I'm excited to have Connecticut bands alongside those with national and international scopes, and I hope that all the bands on Volume Doom will gain new listeners from being part of this comp!"
