Genre: Doom, Metal
Sounds Like: Crowbar, Black Tusk, Pallbearer
Hailing from good old Nashville Tennessee, this foursome is the furthest thing from country. The band infuses some very impressive doom metal with a unique blend of ranging vocals.

Staff Rating: Turn this to 4.2 of 11
Genre: Post-Hardcore
Sounds Like: Poison The Well, Inhale Exhale, Fear Factory
A six-piece hardcore band had us scratching our heads, thinking is it really necessary to have six members? Being from Ireland and having an intriguing album cover we decided to give these guys a shot. The debut EP is pretty much your run-of-the-mill modern day post-hardcore band. With dueling hardc...
