Not many bands whack out tracks over 10 minutes long that really get me going. And these proggy types of music, even the (in my opinion) better ones don’t usually get further listens from me post review. Ancestro may be a first here.
This week I have been getting my metal fix from Beskar. I’ve mentioned numerous times about not being a huge fan of metal, so it takes something special, or at least different, to get a handful of compliments from me.
Any regular readers (I know there aren’t any, but I can dream…) may recall there was a spat of Doom/Drone/Sludge/Stoner Rock bands that I was covering last Summer. Safe to say, they got a bit stale after a while, but when Slutty Clowns popped up in my inbox, I was all over that shit.
I haven’t touched on many bands from the US, but today I have a split EP from two bands bringing you some pretty beefy noise. Neither band seem to be particularly big in size, but by volume is a different story.
There are a few labels who have quite a number of releases that I have reviewed now, and Inverted Grim-Mill Records are becoming another. This time, I had the pleasure of checking out another localish noise fest.
