07:20 - Apothecary In other news, this album is so addictive it should be a Schedule I drug [link]
07:12 - theFIST wormed are at willowtip, they toured with those 2
06:35 - Apothecary We'll just have to agree to disagree then, as much as I love both bands, I still consider Zeppelin and Deep Purple hard rock at the very most
06:34 - flightoficarus Big sale at Willowtip. Best band there besides Ulcerate and Gigan?
06:33 - Apothecary Doom/stoner/sludge has its roots in Sabbath, and power and speed/thrash in Priest. I'd say everything else was just bands taking those categories and then building upon them to create new ones
06:30 - deadone That doesn't preclude Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin being pioneers in heavy metal and as such considered part of the genre, even though they happily sit outside it sometimes.
Traces of Mastodon, Neurosis, Breach... some pretty heavy messed up shit. Not really my cup of tea, being that the breakdowns and pace-changing progressive elements tend to distract me from the listening experience and the noise aspect makes it incredibly difficult to sit through at times. But it's ugly enough to command my attention for a few moments here and there.
If you're looking for some experimental sludge with a really harsh vibe and coarse production, this is definitely worth looking into.
