The Bay Area scene is interesting. It seems that every so often a whole crop of great new bands spring up but then a year later, maybe only one or two still exist. Lately we have been lucky enough to see the formation of such bands as Owl, Hell Ship, Badr Vogu, Pale Chalice, Lady of the Lake, Pins of Light, and one of my personal favorites, Lycus from Oakland. Lycus plays expansive doom with melodic flourishes. There is enough quality material to make this a regular listen. I imagine that Lycus, if they managed to stick it out, could potentially make an album that dominates and eclipses all other bands doing this sort of doom. Watch for them. And you can secure a copy of this tape here.

cant wait to hear this as it sounds extremely promising!
also really loving BADR VOGU! nice to see them mentioned!
This is the Lycus with the Deafheaven drummer, isn't it? Pretty great stuff, there's lot of potential in there.
Yes it is the same Lycus.
Great classic DOOOM. Reminds me of Esoteric, which is a great thing
Hell yes!! Didn't see your link, but found their bandcamp page and downloaded it. Wasn't even finished listening when I had to run over & scoop up a tape copy as well.
This is sold out and out of print
Glad I got my copy. Thanks for posting this.
