Brown Sabbath is the alter ego of Austin-based Brownout, delving into the catalog of the hard rock and heavy metal godfathers themselves Black Sabbath. Today the eight-piece outfit released their debut full-length album Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath via Ubiquity Records. They’ve also released a limited edition 10-inch, color-splattered vinyl single “Hand Of Doom,” featuring The Black Angels’ Alex Maas on vocals. With Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath, Brownout 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 improv
