The hottest underground metal music for the week of 10/20/14 featuring PYRES, ORION, ZEX, HALAHKUK, CHAOS, TIMEWORN, DISCORD and TONIC BREED.

I.O.’s PICK OF THE WEEK PYRES Year of Sleep (Medusa Crush Recordings) This is the most intricately put together sludge metal I’ve heard. There’s a progressive feel to the guitars that takes the songs to the next level. Moody always but there are heavy passages that thrum along the nerves like in “Proximity Anxiety.”  The [...]
