Waste of Space Orchestra delivers an immaculately produced fusion of doom metal, psych and space rock, but the performances and compositions can be lackluster.
Chelsea Wolfe's foray into the slow and heavy sounds of doom/atmospheric sludge metal is admirable and mostly successful, but does come with some growing pains.
Here's the second single from Chelsea Wolfe's heavy new album Hiss Spun. "Vex" has pretty much all the qualities I liked about "16 Psyche," but I especially love the grim, growled vocals lent by Aaron Turner this time. Hiss Spun is out September 22 through Sargent House.
The new Oathbreaker album gets off to a great, pummeling start. Then it goes soft.
One of sludge metal's most legendary bands drops another solid release.
"Mark Kozelek and Justin Broadrick team up for a collaborative album with mixed results."
