Having discovered this band during the "trilogy" period, The Maggot has held up as "soundtrack to my life" material since its beginning. The Bootlicker represents how well the band's experimental urges lead to genre-defining results.
Double Colored Vinyl Reissue featuring two of the three "Trilogy" releases from 1999 packaged together in a 2LP Gatefold Set. Disc 1 on White vinyl, Disc 2 on Doublemint Vinyl. Download card included with vinyl, no download here on Bandcamp.

I probably would've missed out on this had it not been for my subscription to magnetic eye records (you really should subscribe). This is for doom lovers, yes, but it's much more than the standard issue doom that often pushes casual listeners away. This album is emotional, heavy, and clear in its efforts to engage the listener and keep you hooked. Special shout out for the production which places the fantastic bass playing right where you can actually hear it. Highly recommended! Wxmaggot
