Listen through their stuff and they have some real sludgy doom parts or songs on almost every album. WMARD has a ton of slowed down riffage what with Franklin on a couple songs and Friedman even scales down the speed. I have a hunch Ted listened to a lot of Sabbath in his day.

Yeah - Tourniquet is cool! Both the slow & the fast stuff...
I've heard Ted even did a gig with Trouble back in the early nineties.

Wouldn't call them doom,
slow parts don't really mean doom.

Ted played one gig or so with Trouble and was replaced with Barry Stern
Ted is a big Trouble fan so that is a major influence.. of course I haven't listened to them in years

Slow parts don't mean doom but they have songs that are full on slow and very doom like.

Where Moth and Rust Destroy defintitely has some doom moments on it, most notably "A Ghost at the Wheel" (which features Bruce Franklin) and "In Death We Rise", but that's about as much as I can hear on that particular album. They also covered "The Tempter" by TROUBLE on their volume of the Intense Live Series CD.

The had two songs on the first two albums that were doom-ish... but I think that is just the Trouble vibe seeping through

regardless of whether or not one could call them doom, one of
Tourniquet's strong points has always been their level of variation on
their albums, even without venturing too far from their single
sub-genre.

If "Officium Defunctorum" (on Psycho Surgery) isn't a Doom song, I don't know what is...

Tourniquet are far from doom, but they do have some doom influences in their music for sure.

ghosts,
Are you sure it was only one show that Ted played with Trouble? I thought he was with them a bit longer than that.

Oh that is a good track!
It was before they got the dreadful new lead singer

I keep waiting for the TQT police to show up LOL
Dorothy we aren't in Firestream anymore!

It wasn't much more than one show me thinks. He was in the band for a couple of months though. So he rehearsed with them a fair bit I think...

I don't mind Luke as a vocalist but hey, I listen to death metal, what do I know? POG was their pinnacle album in my mind though but WMARD is an album made for Luke.

Cool, thanks ghosts. I was just about to request an mp3 of that track from someone. I can't grab it while at work, but I'll get it tonight at home and let y'all know what I think.

I've never actually heard the first 3 Tourniquet albums, so that's why this track got by me.

I just downloaded Pathogenic Occular Dissonance since I hadnt heard it in ages. WOW!! I had forgotten how good this was! I shall be trying to find this asap.

As far as doom goes they have their doomy parts and they do it well. Their version of The Tempter is most excellent!

Agreed. My only problem with it is that they omitted the "BASTAAAAAAAAAARD!" part at the end. It's sort of integral to the overall feel and ending of the song, IMO. Neutral

Yup!
But on each of the first 3 there is a doom-ish track with Psycho Surgery being their best effort

I think after spinning POD, I will have to say that it is now a tie between that and Psycho Surgery. Stop The Bleeding is good but Guy tries to hard to convince me he is King Diamond. LOL

Ya know Trog I had forgotten they left off the scream. Im gonna have to listen to that cd now.

I will see what I can do... I sold off all of my Tourniquet except live in the studio... Psychosurgery is my only regret there... but I do think I may have kept rips of the cds somewhere... I will murk about

No biggie if you don't have them, I'm just curious is all. What are the titles of the doomish songs on each of the first 3 albums?
