Doomriders may be best known by the members that make it up. Fronted by Converge bassist Nate Newton on guitar and vocals with ex-members of Cave In and Cast Iron Hike, they are somewhat of a MA hardcore supergroup. Their single track on this split, “Crooked Path” is a slow-paced galloping track that rides along for five minutes. Sonically, it sounds like an exact musical match for the Skeletor-on-a-horse cover art of the 2006 full-length, Black Thunder, complete with evil harmonized guitars and a consistent driving beat. I think “Crooked Path” really hits its stride near the end with a cool guitar-and-drum groove before bursting back for two more trips through the chorus. My only complaint is that this track might make more sense as an album cut rather than as a single side of a 7", but it works all the same.
