2015
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Atmospheric doom, Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Pelican, Elder, 5ive - metal band
Earthmass is a heavy psych rock band that hails from Essex, UK. Their blend of music varies between atmospheric doom and stoner rock as we would not expect anything less from a band with a name like Earthmass.

Staff Rating: Crank this to 9 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Post metal
Sounds Like: Alcest, Katatonia
A Swarm of the Sun is a Swedish duo comprised of musicians Erik Nilsson and Jakob Berglund. Their second full length The Rifts is a reflective journey into the minds of these two artists. It is a very well balanced album of Post-metal, shoegaze and even Post-rock. The Rifts is written and p... Full Review and Video Clip

Genre: Punk, Hard southern stoner rock
Sounds Like: Pissed Jeans, Motorhead, Baroness
Hailing from Santa Rosa, California, Sabertooth Zombie deliver a very gritty and southern stoner experimental EP with their 2015 release Human Performance IV. The straining vocals invoke a true sense of despair throughout the four tracks. The  gloom and depravity work well over time. T... Full Review and Video Clip

Fresh, dynamic, invigorating, innovative and dare we say 'groundbreaking' are all words that Dot Legacy conjure up after several listens.

Wall of Sleep
(No Quarter Given)
2014
Staff Rating: Turn this to 3.3 of 11
Genre: Heavy metal
Sounds Like: Trouble, Pale Divine, Rainbow
Hailing from Hungary, Wall of Sleep brings us an album that has a 70s and 80s metal vibe. Their third album No Quarter Given has been labeled as traditional doom with a rooted metal sound. We do agree they have metal influences, but we hardly hear any doom anywhere on here. Their name may c... Full Review and Video Clip

|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock, Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: Kyuss, June of 44, Colour Haze
Looking for something fresh and innovative in the world of psychedelic stoner and doom rock? How about a band that uses a word in their band name that we should perhaps know, but haven't a clue. 'Eidetic' is defined as "relating to or denoting mental images having unusual vividness and detail, as if... Full Review and Video Clip
