The Misery Hymns
— Providence is king of old beard metal – lumbering to epic, sludge to death.
— Swedish muscular death with riffs galore and a brutally frameable album cover.
WITCH MOUNTAIN (Portland)
Burn You Down
— This band has been around for 20+ years, and has inspired an onslaught of female-led occult bands. I was sad when their first lead singer left in 2014, but she was replaced by an equally amazing husky-voiced beauty.
Drowned In The Mirage
— Brooklyn-style epic, complex composition-based black metal.
— Brazilian badass female thrash fiends.
ORANGE GOBLIN (London)
— 9th album is better than some of their previous, still infusing a ton of energy in an otherwise tired genre of stoner. Orange Goblin is why stoner can still be relevant.
— Filthy swirling muddy oppression.
TOMB MOLD (Toronto)
— Get out of your head by listening to rotting death.
— Strange horror atmospheric spitting out in tongues.
