Brown Sabbath is the alter ego of Austin-based psych-funk collective Brownout who delve deep into reinterpreting the catalogue of metal godfathers, Black Sabbath.
They remain true to the darkness, bombast and fuzz of Sabbath’s sound, while re-imagining the music with greasy Afro-Latin horns, hypnotic percussion and psyched-out, rare-groove improvisation.
Their debut single Hand Of Doom, featuring The Black Angels’ Alex Maas on vocals, is set to be released May 27 as limited edition, colored splattered 10-inch vinyl with The Wizard as the b-side on Ubiquity Records. The full-length album, Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath, is set to follow on June 24.
