The first side of Black Sabbath's Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is the best slice of bottom-heavy jam ever. From the opening title track to the death-by-sexy groove of "Sabbra Cadabra," the four songs are Sabbath at their cocaine-all-night, drop-acid-all-day peak, and few bands have the balls to tackle them. And then there's Compel, Summerville's duo of instrumental doom. Last fall, they released a killer cover of Sab's "National Acrobat," and even without vocals, they nail it. "That song in particular has always been my favorite Sabbath song and the riffs are timeless," says guitarist Joe Horne. "It was our way of paying homage and respect to the fellows that paved the way for our style of play. We just added our own flavor to it." Drummer Tim Davis adds, "There are tons of 'War Pigs' and 'Paranoid' covers, so we wanted to choose something a little more unique." Compel also has a pretty rock-solid self-titled three-song EP under their belt, featuring one track that goes over the 20-minute mark. "I'm sure you've heard a song before where a riff starts playing and right when you really start to get into it, it's over," Davis says. "We try to not leave our listeners hanging like that." The Summerville metal heads have plans to release a new EP this July. Stay tuned. —Chris Haire
