King Woman’s post-metal exploration of doom is a ticket to hazy and strange musical landscapes. It makes no apologies and takes no prisoners in its quest for catharsis.
The greats of thrash would be proud of Tyranex’s “Death Roll,” the rare album that imparts G-forces to the listener with its blazing speed and blistering riffs. Not for the faint of heart.
Dopelord creates a sound all their own on “Children of the Haze,” blending stoner rock and doom with a touch of magic. This contagious, riff heavy album does exactly what it wants to.
Mutoid Man’s “War Moans” is unapologetically dirty, rough, and lascivious, and it’s having so much fun that you’ll be swept up in its aggression with a smile.
Devil Electric’s self-titled release combines groovy doom with hard rock and 70s fuzz into a seductive debut. Only hard work sounds this casual.
In this excellent EP, Trevor William Church builds traditional heavy metal that is catchy and fun and leaves us wanting more. Fortunately, there’s more to come.
Without one misplaced note, Trees of Eternity offers up an hour of melancholy deliberation, and a beautiful farewell to and from singer Aleah Stanbridge.
