Deli Best of NYC 2011 - Submissions Results for METAL: Exemption, Fall of the Albatross, Thinning the Herd





Deli Best of NYC 2011 - Submissions Results for METAL: Exemption, Fall of the Albatross, Thinning the Herd

Metal might not be the music genre that made NYC famous, but it's a growing scene, mostly fueled by artists based in Long Island and New Jersey, areas covered by our blog. We only had 6 submissions in this category, but all very good.

NYC YEAR END POLL 2011 OPEN SUBMISSIONS RESULTS FOR METAL
Jurors: Mike SOS (Deli NYC), Erin D'Souza (Deli NYC)

- QUALIFIED TO THE POLL'S NEXT ROUND
The artists in this list qualify for the next phase of the poll, and will be added to the bands nominated by our jury of local scenemakers.

1a: EXEMPTION

Jam packing its copmposition with an encyclopedic knowledge of a multitude of rock genres, Long Island based Exemption allows its prog rock sensibilities to overshadow their stoner metal tendencies and modern metal panache, while tumultuous percussive rumbles and layers of delectable guitars illuminate their variety-addled path to musical enlightenment.

2a: THINNING THE HERD

Self-professed hard rock psyche metal troupe Thinning the Herd lays down a thunderous backbeat that shares as much with Blue Cheer as it does with Soundgarden, while offering a dastardly amalgamation of doomy blues, fuzzed-out psychedelics, grungy post metal , and ‘70s arena rock.

2b: FALL OF THE ALBATROSS

Schizophrenic Queens quintet Fall of the Albatross serve up a soulful smorgasbord of eclectic heaviness, fusing mind-blowing funk, smooth jazz, headstrong progressive rock and blistering technical metal into a surprisingly tidy package. - Mike SOS
