Stinking Lizaveta is a power trio from Philadelphia that plays heavy instrumental rock. MusicMight categorizes them as "doom jazz".[1] Their 1996 debut album "Hopelessness and Shame" was recorded by Steve Albini. Albini was so impressed by them, he brought them to the All Tomorrow's Parties festival he co-curated in 2004.[2] The band's first two albums were on Compulsiv, their third came out on Joe Lally's now-defunct Tolotta Records label;[3] later releases have been on At a Loss Recordings in the US and Monotreme Record in UK and Europe. Their most recent release, 2012's "7th. Direction", was released via German label Exile On Mainstream.[4] Extensive touring has included supporting Clutch on a 2005 US tour, and in the UK in 2006 they toured with Clutch and Corrosion of Conformity.[5]

The band gets its name from a character in the 1880 Russian novel The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky.[6]
