Faces of the Bog "Weight"

Doom Metal band Faces of the Bog recently emerged from their lengthy hiatus to release a single called "Weight". The track was recorded back in May of 2019 for the soundtrack of a yet to be released independent film called "Green Summer".

This is the work of Paul Bradfield (Bass), Danny Garcia (Drums/Percussion), Trey Wedgeworth (Guitars/Vocals), and Mark Cichra (Guitars/vocals). The last we had heard from the group was their 2016 debut album, Ego Death.

   

Gypsy Brydge - Blistering Rock n' Roll Debut "Up Jumped the Devil"

Long haired dudes from Hamilton. This power trio play serious rock n’ roll that ranges from glam rock to the blues. You can hear this on their debut single “Up Jumped The Devil” which features a harmonica intro, a KISS inspired party rockin’ verse, shredding interludes and a thrash solo. Crank it up! Their next gig is at Stonewalls in Hamilton on February 29th. – Kris Gies

Strange Conversations debut prog-rock album "Blase' Faire"

Towards the end of 2019 a quite-the-noisy record was released: Blase' Faire, the prog-rock album by Salem, New Hampshire group Strange Conversations touched down with its killer beats and swirling synth embellishments. The grandiose guitar solos that throwback to ‘80s hair glory found in tracks like “Stranglehold (Like Yesterday)” are thrilling and perfectly placed. From thunderous instrumental breakdowns to more serene-pensive tracks like “Better Late Than Never,” the band showcases its versatility and instrumental prowess. The new record has an old-school feel to it but a very modern edge sharpened by a solid production. Listen to the sick guitar riff that slithers between the atmospheric instrumentals of “Spirals” from the new album below. - Rene Cobar

   

Tombstone Eyes

I don’t think it was a coincidence that the Stoner Metal group Tombstone Eyes released their debut album, Land In The Sky, on January 1st via the local label Akashic Records Unlimited. The sixteen minute track “Solar Barge” is the perfect track to zone out to and let your mind expand.

This is the work of Brownstone, John Brown, Mustafa Daka, and Jason Sipe.
