German three piece doom/sludge band Shakhtyor has been streaming its self-titled four-song album over on Bandcamp. The band writes its logo in Cyrillic, which translates into "miner" in Russian - a term that describes their slow and hard sound. Guitarist Christian has a fascination with Russia ever since he visited some of his former university flatmates in St. Petersburg. The guitarist and bassist of Shakhtyor knew each other from another Hamburg band they were in. After that band split up in 2008, they formed Shakhtyor. Stream all four tunes from the album below.
