Serpentine Path - Emanations (Relapse Records)

Sludge, Trudge, Repeat...
Release Date: 
27 May 2014 (All day)

Serpentine Path give new meaning to the word "bruisers." Their very music sounds how bruises might --  evidence of a blotted and sickly impact, growing uglier

Red Fang - Whales and Leeches (Relapse)

Beard-rock seems too harsh a term...

Red Fang have reached an unprecedented level of cachet in their relatively short existence.

Rwake - Rest (Relapse Records)

Rest evokes colour and darkness, despair and longing, crushing brutality that is tearfully beautiful.
Release Date: 
27 Sep 2011 - 11:50pm

Arkansas. Other than Bill Clinton, USA President, I don't know much about this state. When I read that Rwake was a metal band hailing from Arkansas, I was leery and dubious.
