16 - Zoloft Smile (CD)



This disc destroys, plain and simple, reminding me of what would happen if Helmet was given a lethal overdose of Eyehategod. 16 bring forth, 10 new tracks on this one that just drip with hate and negativity. It's the soundtrack to the worst day you've ever had and you'll be loving every minute of it.

This is 16's most stripped down recording to date and the overall sound is extremely intense, with grimy riffs that'll get stuck in the dark places of your mind for days. The rhythm section is as dense as its ever been, nailing everything down tight with Chris Jerue's anxiety ridden vocals right up front. When he sings there is something very disturbing about it.

Man, what an awesome disc. One of the things I love about this album is that its very simplistic but still chock full of subtle time changes and variety in the songs. The only complaint I have (which is actually a compliment) is that after the mayhem ends, you'll wish there was another 10 songs. 16 have done it again, and I only hope we don't have to wait another 4 years for the follow up. Great work, by one of the pioneering and best bands to play that whole sludge/noise sound. Zoloft Smile is the feel bad album of the summer and I love every minute of it!

This follows in the same league as their last album, Blaze of Incompetence. Sludgy, evil groovy bass heavy dropped tuning like a drugged out evil version of Helmet or Unsane. The lyrics are totally negative and pessimistic. Yup, the world isn't a happy place, but this new 16 makes it more tolerable.

American Heritage - Millenarian (CD)



Millenarian is a powerful and intense dose of technical metal. Fuzzy riffs and complex arrangements meld into more traditional metal shredding. There are long passages of instrumental sections punctuated by muffled yelling style vocals. Many comparisons have been made between American Heritage and Mastodon, and their styles are definitely similar, although American Heritage is not a clone and have their own distinctive approach.

American Heritage has tons of quick, angular riffs, but is backed up with some heavy thrash and a lot of loose bottom end crunch. American Heritage sounds as heavy as hell by just playing super tight, super intricate metal - but don't let their technical prowess lead you to believe these guys are "tech." The vocals take a background and the music itself just rides and carries the weight. But I don't mean this is like Pelican with some vocals, it's an integral part, but not the focus. I liken it to a band like Akimbo or Lords hanging out with the dudes and dudette from Kylesa or His Hero is Gone rocking out to Anodyne and playing some raging metal. And, to me, that's what it boils down to.

Baroness/Unpersons - A Grey Sigh in a Flower Husk (Black) (LP)

Includes a download card for MP3s of the album!

If Baroness' First and Second EPs established the Georgia-based band as a rising force in the underground metal scene, this split with Unpersons catapults them to the front of the pack. You only get two songs, but man alive, it's a veritable banquet of awesome riffs.

Unpersons doesn't quite offer the same level of musicianship, but they're also operating on a more primal level. These guys struck me as being kindred spirits to Akimbo – it's a jittery, angry cacophony that's never as straightforward as you assume.

This is music that should be celebrated by those not interested in genre limitations. Recommended for the Baroness tracks alone; the Unpersons is gravy.

A brand new LP split between two of Savannah, Georgia's heaviest. BARONESS unleashes two long tracks of rock bombast that's been described as "Tragedy meets Electric Wizard meets The Fucking Champs." UNPERSONS respond with four tracks of genre-meshing crush (elements of death metal, hardcore, stoner rock, etc.).

Battlefields - Thresholds of Imbalance (CD)



Thresholds... is a sprawling, epic affair that delivers plenty of beautiful, lilting atmospheric moments. But a lot of Battlefields’ sound remains rooted in bleak, sludgy doom metal and the combined effect of the two sonic extremes is genuinely thrilling, not to mention refreshing. The new Isis aside, if Thresholds of Imbalance isn’t one of the year’s finest post-millennial doom offerings then I must have missed something very big indeed.

Battlefields keep it organic and make music that’s not about destination but about getting places. For them, it is the road that matters. Battlefields work their atmospheres through time. Slowly developing a post rocking sound that had it come out about nine years ago it would have blown minds, this fledging band adopts a seemingly simplistic stance. Battlefields surprise for their simple aesthetics and their unorthodox addition of infrequent black metal vocals. The end product has depth and the band successfully borrows as much from Slint as from Isis. Name dropping aside, Battlefields puts the ball in the listener’s court. You gotta let this stuff wrap you over. These tunes will slowly take you prisoner, like a fly in a spider web.

Birch Hill Dam - Colossus (CD)

Bonus track is a cover of Twisted Sister's "Burn in Hell".

Staying true to their debut, what you get here is more of the same southern-tinged stoner metal, a little doom thrown in for good measure and heaping amount of 70's and 80's rock, akin with bands like Down, Crowbar Alabama Thunderpussy with a bit of Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple.

Black Cobra - Bestial (Black) (LP)

Extremely limited edition on black swirled vinyl!

Black Cobra’s three song EP from last year was a brutal slab of aggressive sludge, hardcore, and metal that was over before you knew it. Bestial, their first full length, delivers so well that it makes the EP seem weak and listless by comparison. The raw demo sound is replaced by a full, well-rounded production that brings out the best in Black Cobra. There’s not a moment where the two-piece, who’ve played in Secret Order of Tusk, Gamera, Acid King, 16, and Cavity, lets you catch your breath. Even the slower, sludgier songs have a fierce intensity. Along with the Cavity influence, there’s a bit of Big Business, Floor, Dove, and Torche to their approach – barrel forward, sucker punching the listener along the way. With Bestial, they’ve conjured up something awesome. Along with releases by the likes of Lair of the Minotaur, Facedowninshit, and Akimbo, 2006 is shaping up to be a great year for skull crushing metal.

Black Cobra’s first full-length, a heavy slab of doom and sludgecore, sees guitarist/vocalist Jason Landrian and drummer Rafael Martinez not only paying tribute but contributing to a burgeoning scene of nihilistic challengers to both traditionalism and cleanliness. The two fight their way through assumed demons with reckless abandon, one possessing an axe capable of producing riffs that can rid any man’s ballsack of the tiniest and most impenetrable of hairs with one simple, crushing note (think of Mastodon’s “Iron Tusk”), and the other bitchslapping foes with sticks that sound so full and weighty that if they were to be made human would instantly rise to the top of porn stardom based on size alone.

Bestial is one dangerous collection of music, proving that not every sonic aesthetic has been recycled and abused, and as recycled and abused as the phrase “expect the unexpected” continues to be, it applies more to this album than any I’ve listened to this year. I thought I was in for 24/7 mayhem, but Black Cobra takes a slight break and smokes out on the instrumentally contemplative-sounding “El Doce de Octubre,” a song that not only incorporates a lot of weird and unexpected pauses but ups the sludge as well. While many bands producing similar sounds tend to elongate certain passages to seemingly no end, Black Cobra cuts the fat off of unnecessary tendons and keeps the album primitively absent of decoration. Bestial sways to and fro with a personalized rhythm that demands a unique response from listeners, and its succinctness allows for a greater accessibility than many of its peers.

Black Cobra - Feather and Stone (CD)

This is an enhanced CD which features live video footage from Roadburn 2007.

The genius of the band is that they take a little bit of everything nasty - thrash, grind, sludge, primarily, but some will also add âśbad dreamsâť to that list â“ and make it their own. The noise created is so loud and forceful that you don't even realize there's no bass involved. In spite of the constant aural assault, there's a certain artistry to Feather and Stone. Sure, Black Cobra is a perpetual destruction machine, but they pummel with grace. Make sure you're up to date on all your shots and dive in.

Feather and Stone finds Black Cobra expanding and diversifying their sound. The songs are sludgy and doomy with thick fuzzy riffs and bombastic drums. But instead of going full speed all the time, they incorporate some mellower and quieter moments that add balance and diversity. The vocals are harsh and abrasive, but they are rather sparse and buried in the mix, with lengthy instrumental interludes. Black Cobra has improved their songwriting, musicianship and diversity, and Feather and Stone is an album sludge and doom fans can really sink their teeth into.
