Standout Track(s)


This sonic piece of stoner doom hits with a stellar heavy rhythm and addicting soothing vocals.

Dark Desires

Back-to-back with "Hedonist" keeps the thick riffs moving along. We hear a bit of new Alice In Chains deep in the music.


Brew Pairing

White Out by Ontario, Canada bases Sleeping Giant Brewing. This 6.1% IPA is crisp and hazy with tropical flavors. A nice pairing with The Ocean.
