1. BONE I’m at a loss in how describe this band’s brilliance, because every moment of their album For Want of Feeling alters my state of mind! On many levels, I think that BONE have created a the perfect album. This band’s songs are huge trees of emotion that cast

I can totally see why a band like Fórn have made such a name for themselves and seem to be on a vertical climb in the last year or so. This shit isn’t just heavy, it’s downright fucking LETHAL. Fórn is one heavy motherfucking band, but their music isn’t just

I can feel the maggots crawling around me leaving their shit-stained sludge everywhere! Actually, I’m just feeling the after effects of listening to the new OPEN TOMB album Dead Weight that is being released on Aug. 6th via Dry Cough Records. These titans of everything slow and dirty are back

Text: Will // Hivelords A golden, rotting body; like many tour kickoffs, things were stressful with last minute preparations for the first gigs in Lindenwold, NJ and York, PA.
