The stomps are so heavy I just used my phone speakers to level some freshly-laid concrete.

Half joyful singalong, half super pissed off Stray From The Path style mosh-riffs, all pretty damn good.

Another absolute banger; earnest and heavy and that bridge riff is very very nice

Chunky old school death metal, just like mama used to make it (the sarcophagus juice we're not supposed to drink)

Massive doom metal with a positive spin on the heaviness, like getting a hug from an uncle who's dressed as Santa and definitely been hitting the sauce all day

Epic, with a smattering of original ideas that nicely fit in, as opposed to sounding bolted on

It sounds like the intro song to a gritty reboot of those cartoons and puppet shows that were on after school in the 90's.

This sounds exactly - *exactly* - like what it feels like to be crushed by the intense pressure of Jupiter while you serenely float in its low gravity gaseous form. Pitch perfect. Call Nat Geo (the little bits of dissonance at the end score a half star, wowee)

This bridge hits harder than THAT scene in Endgame. The rest of this track somehow covers djent, melodic metalcore and even a hint of numetal, without ever sounding like a cover. This is super creative and well realized, and why/how is everyone so talented get out

If more melodic blackened death bands could exist and release tracks this good, the world would be a grimmvr place (but it'd be better for it)

Wasn't expecting to spend my night vibing out to some incredibly thoughtful and creative psych-sludge that's hard as hell, but here we are.

Crisp, energetic, smooth and with plenty of bounce and depth. Like my hair, but more listenable.

This has some super raw From A Second Story Window vibes. I'm as into the idea of the song as I am the song itself

As a nu-metal tragic who also likes to pretend he's "down" with "the" "kids", it brightens my world to know this music can still exist.

Dude, nice. I want to see this live; the song just unfolds and evolves, and seeing it nailed in the flesh would be something

This has got that delightful groove, some heaviness, and something you could dance so poorly to as a metalhead you could alienate an entire mosh pit. More room to dance!
