TroubleÆs classic debut album from 1984 with faithfully restored audio represents everything that Doom Metal should be. TroubleÆs early work and, in particular, ôPsalm 9ö represent everything that Doom Metal should be (but so often is not). Think about it, here is a band who are really rather diverse, with regard to tempo, arrangements and mood, and are not afraid to break the mould of what is typically expected of a Doom band. For 1984 this is an incredibly contemporary record; itÆs Doom to the bone, but also thrashy and featuring some, for the time, modern Heavy Metal touches. At its heart thereÆs nothing regressive or throw-backy about this record. Honestly, it makes one laugh when stuff like this is called ætraditional doom metalÆ; what is traditional about it? Bands like Trouble and Candlemass werenÆt operating in an established tradition, they were forging their own sound.Too often one hears doom bands who really take the Metal out of Doom. Doom nowadays often seems to be a byword for ôplay slow,minimise your Metallic leaningsö. Of course, ôPsalm 9ö answers to oneÆs prayers as it has lead guitar and fast parts in abundance.Contrast is key to its success and every stomping, down-trodden riff is offset by a fast break. Trouble love playing slow, but damn, theyÆll rip your face off, too!
