The Clouds Of Damnation

THE VINTAGE CARAVAN (Iceland)
— Icelandic retro-rockers clench my heart with luscious vocals accompanied with jean jacket jams.
INFERA BRUO (Boston)
— Super group with members of Trap Them and Pillory, and yes this is atmospheric - but don't let that scare you. They still break into epic head banging savagery.
UNEARTHLY TRANCE (NY)

— Signature snarling hardcore, punk and southern rock infused with thick beards.
