The self-released debut E.P. by Finnish retro rockers. The name "Vinum Sabbatum" can be a little bit misleading, because this is more Atomic Rooster than Black Sabath. But still, Vinum Sabbatum is a bloody great traditional doom metal act.

Juha "K.K." Köykkä - Guitars

"You could say that Galva is musically too similar to Down, but they aren't just paying homage to Down, they also managed to create the best brand of southern-fueled stoner metal. There are some absolutely killer grooves throughout this album."
"Her Name Was Fire is a small band with a big sound. They draw inspiration from such legends as Queens of the Stone Age, Black Keys, Kyuss and Alice In Chains to create electrifying compositions based around the blues and stoner rock."
"The first word that comes to mind after listening to this album is 'heavy'. It's a thrilling vintage-sounding production inspired by traditional doom metal, Electric Wizard-esque stoner doom and witchcraft. The band combines a monumental riffing attitude with psychedelic sounds."
