Matt Price of Behold! The Monolith on their new album “From the Fathomless Deep” and much more!

Behold the Monolith

Four albums in with From the Fathomless Deep and Behold! The Monolith are heavier than ever. Call it sludge with black metal and progressive tendencies, call it metal with a nasty attitude, or call it whatever you want; these guys hit and hit hard. There’s no denying that fact. Buke sat down with guitarist Matt Price for a wide ranging discussion surrounding their new album, some band history, and so much more. We now bring you this conversation in its entirety so grab your beverage of choice, a seat, and enjoy.

Video Premiere: Suffocater — “Plague”


Suffocater unveiled their new album, Rotting Existence, just this past Friday, and today it is our pleasure to follow that up with a premiere of their new video for “Plague”. The third track from that collection is a dense, bludgeoning display that leaves its mark without wasting a second of the concise runtime. Meanwhile, the visual component proves to be equally as compelling, adding a layer that expands the experience in a number of directions. But you know how this works… Don’t take my word for it. Give it a watch immediately after the jump.

Album Review: Telekinetic Yeti — “Primordial”

Telekinetic Yeti - Primordial

I am always impressed when small bands are able to create massive sonic sounds.  Sludge/stoner metal lords Telekinetic Yeti are one of those epic bands with only two members on their roster.  Moreover, the band does not have (but does not lack) a bassist.  I have been a fan since their debut in 2017 and their sophomore release, Primordial, brings even more heat and skill than I could have ever imagined.  Ever present is the band’s signature psychedelic sound with seasoned songwriting and prime production in this new release.  This is an album to completely lose yourself in and succumb to being carried away in colossal riff waves.

Album Review: Pyrithe — “Monuments to Impermanence”

Pyrithe‘s Monuments to Impermanence is a prime example of the kinds of weird and exciting places that sludge can lead someone.
