Black Tusk and Whores brought the energy up from Georgia to put a heavy end to the start of the week–with a solid supporting act straight outta Quebec!
A bit of a new look for Black Tusk on this one, as this Georgia trio puts out its first new record since replacing…
Not entirely sure if this is to be Black Tusk’s final album—bassist/vocalist Johnathan Athon tragically passed away weeks after it was recorded. They’ve replaced…
Hellbound Metal: “Bottom line, if you enjoy the Georgia sludge sounds of Black Tusk, this’ll certainly whet your appetite.”

Overall, this is a pretty solid sludge record. Nothing that I haven’t really heard before, but these guys do it fairly well.
Though they’re named after an opulent area of Hong Kong, this band hails from San Fran, across the Pacific Ocean. And after their self-released debut record generated a bit of a buzz three years back, KWC has signed with Brutal Panda for this, their sophomore release—35 and a half minutes of punishing post-sludge.
Yellow & Green by Baroness is arguably one of the richest and most diverse albums you are going to hear this year. It is certainly the most ambitious musical undertaking by Baizley and Co yet, but they manage to pull it off without a hitch. Production-wise it’s a little too retro for my taste, but otherwise this is a fantastic musical adventure. I’m hooked!
COC has a new album coming out and, as Gruesome Greg says, “this is some good shit!”
“These guys have definitely got the Georgia sound (Kylesa, Baroness, Zoroaster et al), though they mould it into shorter, faster and maybe not quite as loud tunes. Still better than most.”
