Music / Stinking Lizaveta

Stinking Lizaveta are a metal band named for a mute character in The Brothers Karamazov, with elements of doom, jazz, and inevitably for an instrumental band, a certain amount of psychedelia. Scream of the Iron Iconoclast is probably their best known album, getting exceptionally good reviews in the press - always with the addendum that, however good they are through your speakers, they're better live. The music is considered and deliberate without being overly-portentous and experimental without being pretentious.

  • Slaughterhouse
  • III
  • Caught Between Worlds
  • Scream of the Iron Iconoclast
  • Sacrifice and Bliss
