Black Manta

The Maryland/DC area has been cranking out doom bands for the last couple of decades, and Black Manta is one of those bands, with a 2004 EP, the oddly titled Fuck Them All But Six, to their credit. Vocalist Skull is one of those typical garage doom singers, forceful if not really possessing a great voice, while musically the guitars are noticeably fuzzed out, giving them almost a psychedelic vibe, though the emphasis is on simplistic, ultra-heavy riffs. This isn't going to change the world or anything, and it's anything but polished (especially in this age of slick, ultra-produced albums), but for underground doom one could do a lot worse.
