Album Review: William English - "Basic Human Error"

Surprises are bountiful in music, and such was the case with UK-based William English on their full length debut Basic Human Error.

Mastodon - The Hunter

Infinite evolution screams from every new release by Mastodon, Atlanta, Georgia, USA based metal powerhouse. The Hunter doesn’t disappoint in this manner either. It is a pretty large turnover on their former work, dropping the conceptual idea altogether and delving into heavy experimentation; nonetheless, this album shines in a different hue. 323 more words

Khemmis are a US Doom Metal band and this is their début album.

Now this is an interesting release. The album cover might lead you to believe that Khemmis are a Traditional Doom Metal band, and although this is certainly a big part of their sound there’s also more going on here than that. 204 more words

This is the début EP from US Sludge Metal band Palinopsia.
