New Cloth EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Amid Independence Day celebrations earlier this month, the Cloth released their new EP Going to Vomit. Shrouded in the brutal darkness of unforgiving grunge-noise-metal tones, a despairing/tormented voice echoes personal pain. Raw, emotive-laced energy rises to the surface in grim potency that one just can’t shake.

New God Root EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The quintet of God Root released its second EP Salt And Rot, which is available via local imprint Horror Pain Gore Death. Shrouded in the shadows of sludge, a steady quaking heaviness permeates. Those dire sonic consequences are pushed to the brink, building towards a doom-driven conclusion. The band is slated to appear at The Irish Pol on Saturday, August 19 with Mob Terror.

Mood Music: Saola - "A Strange Radiation"

Metal music has quite the history to it. Not to say its history sets it entirely apart from other genres, but metal classics can go as deep as wounds with the lasting effect they have on a person. Some of the best metal musicians have years in age under their belt, leaving more time to develop a personal history of memories that adds to their devotion to the genre. But for local youths Saola, age hasn't a goddamn thing to do with their output, and they make that widely known.

It's not that Saola flaunt their age. In fact, it's quite the opposite, not that it particularly matters anyway. For this doom quartet, who are exiting their high school years, the level of musicianship they've individually and collectively reached is at a tier near the greats. It's shown in their debut album Black Canvas and in their live sets, which is part of how they ended up winning one of our artist polls last month. They're guaranteed to go far and if you haven't given Saola a chance yet, it's about time to change that.

Now that the brutal heat is here, listen to their equally as brutal track "A Strange Radiation" below.
