Digitally remastered edition. Trouble's early work and, in particular, Psalm 9 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.

At it's heart there's nothing regressive or throw-backy about this record. l.
