This is the second volume in the Hydra Head series of Black Sabbath tribute 7"s. And since this is a Hydra Head release, one can only expect pounding, chaotic metal. As with Boston's Converge lashing out a cover of "Snowblind" with their trademark of metallic guitar leads and screamy vocals. On the flip is Brutal Truth who rip through a straight-forward rendition of "Cornucopia," growly vocals and all. In These Black Days only further solidifies the legend of Black Sabbath, not to mention that this series is better than previous compilation salutes.
