Stinking Lizaveta - Sacrifice and Bliss Album Cover

To balance such wild and burning disparities of influence takes immaculate skill, and the powerful-as-rampant-influenza stronghold of Philadelphia’s instrumental Stinking Lizaveta completely shit the competition. This is not a genre-hopping disparity (the band are defiantly evil and sludgy), but one of delivery. Jazz-inflected guitars dance wildly over muscular grinds of bass and drum, before crushing homophony arrives and unites them in purpose – you’re listening or dead. -

Stinking Lizaveta is a power trio from Philadelphia that plays heavy instrumental rock. MusicMight categorizes them as "doom jazz". The band gets its name from a character in the 1880 Russian novel The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky. - wikipedia


  1. Tnx mate. One of the greatest bands I've discovered this year. Do you have any other album of theirs? I searched all over but I can't find any older album,I would be grateful if you could find something older.
