This New Jersey three-piece (Mike Marra. Joe Heggie. Tyler White) play some heavy-ass instrumental stoner jams often veering onto the metal tracks of the genre. The three songs on offer on their demo see the band at a remarkably advanced stage of their musicianship with a sound steeped in layers of riffs and technical ability, albeit hidden slightly under weak production. The band themselves call it a taste of things to come, and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in the future.
Forest of Legend
The Sleep influences are heavy with this Virginia three-piece doom power band as heavy smoked engulfed riffs embody the very essence of the group. All these heavy riffs and yelling vocals are evident on their superb demo EP which sees the trio playing thick slabs of doom with Black Sabbath style song-writing amongst the guitar riffs that go straight for the kill. Forest Of Legend have the potential in them to make an incredible record. Watch this space.
Like a Mountain, Like a Tiger
Heavy heavy heavy psych from fantastic Pennsylvanian duo Like a Mountain, Like a Tiger! Their recently released EP/1 might just have two tracks on offer, but they showcase a sound from a band on the cusp of greatness. Whether it’s the laid back spaced out instrumental jams of droning psychedelia, or the crushing heavy riffs and very rare distorted vocal samplings that get your heart pounding, this is the band for you.
