San Francisco’s King Woman made a grand entrance in 2014 with their critically-lauded EP, Doubt. The record’s striking blend of sludgy weight, shoegaze textures, moody atmosphere and powerful sense of femininity presented something not often heard in the realm of doom. This previously untapped genre of ethereal doom rock needed to be explored and pushed further, and King Woman clearly recognized that. With their first proper full-length release, Created in the Image of Suffering, they unearth the full potential of their singular sound.

Mr. Ross came up with a fun idea: to write about our top 5 most influential albums from the 2000’s. So thinking back through it all, most of my metal growth and interest (and knowledge I suppose) came from this decade. Sure there were a lot of back catalogs of music to indulge in but there were some key releases that got me interested in more genres and heavier music. In the year 2000, I was only a sophomore in high school. 2010? I was working a welding job and having a child. A lot happened in between that time frame but I think I can manage to pick only 5 albums that were most influential to me. It all started on August 28th 2001…

Guitarist Enrico Schettino comments:
Pomona, California’s Xibalba recently premiered a new track from their forthcoming 7″ EP, Diablo, Con Amor…Adios, at Decibel. The new track, which closes out the upcoming effort, is titled “Adios” and features all of the down-tuned beatdown grooves one can handle. Get crushed after the break.
Diabo, Con Amor…Adios will be released on February 17 via Closed Casket Activities. Pre-order here.
Mastodon recently released a new track from their highly-anticipated forthcoming album, Emperor of Sand, which is due out on March 31. The new track is titled “Show Yourself” and in contrast to previous single “Sultan’s Curse”, the tune takes a more pop-laden rock turn with its swagger-filled riffs and saccharine choruses. Check out the track after the break.
Pre-order Emperor of Sand here.
