Richmond trio Sinister Haze creeps through torpid doom metal, with thick smoke rolling off each foreboding hook and over every knotty solo. Brandon Marcey also plays in Virginia's great Cough, but this new act is more pliable, with shifty rhythms that allow for psychedelic side trips. Demon Eye is named for Deep Purple and in love with Black Sabbath. Their hangman riffs and economic refrains are willfully basic, but their verve has turned their old sound into one of the Triangle's most enjoyable and guileless new bands.
