Causticgod mix traditional doom metal, heavy metal, and stoner metal together across these 44 minutes. Continue reading
Extinguish the Sun describe their music with reference to bands such as Mastodon, Clutch, Corrosion of Conformity, and Every Time I Die, and I have to say that sets the scene for their music pretty well. Continue reading
