— Slovenian lead-ups and focus on drumming with hot hoodied dudes.
HIGH ON FIRE (Oakland)
— High on Fire tries their hand with menacing, chomping metal and it is badass. The drumming is tight and brutal and the highlight.
Perfume and Steel
— Groove and black metal blasting ash into a Danish sky.
— Her vocals harmonize so perfectly with this style of stoner, really allowing this genre to shine in her hands.
DEPTHS ABOVE (Czech)
— Romantic emotional melodies, vibrant and gloomy.
— Monstrous aggressive death blowing from the bowels of hell.
ONE TAIL, ONE HEAD (Norway)
— First and last album, kind of makes you want to hear their story. Death mixed with more modern atmospheric. The bassist stands out.
— Acoustic instrumentation mixed with aggression and anguish.
— Screaming, dying, tortured sludge.
CRUCIBLE OF HATE (OH)
— Galloping death and thrash from aggressive Ohio
