Kylesa – Time Will Fuse Its Worth

With my last surge throughout the bowls of Sludge Metal, i guess it was time to talk about Kylesa, they play a more by the numbers form of Sludge, truer to the purest form of Sludge, mixing in some way Doom Metal, Hardcore Punk and Stoner Metal, with a couple of twists and turns in between. So what “Time Will Fuse Its Worth” is all about?

Intronaut – Void

Intronaut play a interestingly mix variety of music, i would put them in the alternative/progressive metal/rock arena, close in resemblance with what Mastodon excel at, maybe a bit less overwhelming, i don’t know if i would fit it into the sludge category as well, nevertheless loads of skill and sprinkles of loads of genres popping in and out, so how does “Void” fit into this?

Mastodon – Leviathan

Mastodon has a sound that reminds me of stoner rock, more stoner metal, with complex jazz like drumming, yeah you heard me right, but what would you expect from former members of the alternative drum machine that was “Today is the Day”, so what does this new album “Leviathan” brings to the board, well it has a back story, it’s an epic, it’s Herman Melville “Moby Dick”, say what?, yeah why not choose a classic novel as a theme, so let’s have a look and see if it’s the best soundtrack for the white wale.
