Ixion – Return (Finisterian Dead End)

There have always been two elements to Ixion’s sound – the funeral doom slog and the uplifting keyboard vibes to balance it all out. It worked nicely on Into the Void, which was more what most would consider to be… Continue Reading →

Arcadea – S/T (Relapse)

So with Mastodon’s newest genre-bending long-player hot off the press and filling our stomachs with meaty melodies, their drummer/backing vocalist, Brann Dailor, has seen it fit to offer us up a side-helping of psychedelic, synthetic electronica. That boy is a… Continue Reading →
