Incantation (Johnstown, Pennsylvania)                          Sludging through the stomach of Satan, comes Incantation to help regurgitate what is strikingly morbid and at times, scary ass music.  They could be hell’s soundtrack; unhinged, disorienting music with evil riffs coursing through it’s heavy-as-hell veins.  They tend to give you […]

Comments Off on Entombed

Entombed (Stockholm, Sweden)                        Raw and undeniably heavy with tastefully darkened riffs ravaging the sound-scape.  Mature songwriting abound to create very memorable tunes.  The starting of ‘buzz-saw’ sounding guitars are very much tied to Entombed.  Although some bands like Repulsion did that before them, Entombed’s writing […]

Origin (Topeka, Kansas)              Searing riffs leap toward you attacking the stratospheric barrier and destroying the ozone layer, dooming us with catastrophic consequences.  Origin’s riffs are dangerous, but just too bad-ass to be left behind bars.  So instead of conviction, they are released into the atmosphere, further convincing you that this is one […]

Gojira (Bayonne, France)                       Something massive is rising from the water.  The closer it gets, the louder it is.  Growling, stomping, quaking the ground under your feet.  And just before the sun rises, it hits the shore.  As it walks towards you it forms an eclipse from […]

The Faceless (Encino, California)                         The Faceless were probably abducted by the most sinister aliens ever, that upon release because of their metal playing prowess, were told to spread the message of the aliens through sound.  And what came after was bouts of sonic explosions dense […]
