R.I.P. (US)
https://braveinthegrave.bandcamp.com/

"When R.I.P. came crawling out of the sewers of Portland, OR last year, their grimy, sleazy Street Doom was already a fully formed monstrosity that quickly infected the minds of everyone it encountered.

Now, borne from the band’s declining state of mental health and increasing focus on songwriting, Street Reaper is an even more unhinged and menacing album that their debut In The Wind.

Borrowing equally from 80s Rick Rubin productions and Murder Dog magazine aesthetics, Street Reaper is a streamlined yet brutally raw manifesto of heavy metal ferocity hearkening to the era when both metal and hip hop were reviled as the work of street thugs intent on destroying America’s youth. Throughout, Angel Martinez’s guitar and John Mullett’s bass are inextricably interlocked, sounding like a massive sonic steamroller, while drummer Willie D keeps the beat solid and simple for the most powerful impact. And, the band’s extensive touring and excessive virgin sacrifices have clearly endued singer Fuzz with evermore agile vocal chords to drive it all home with extreme precision.

Operating on the belief that doom is not tied to a tuning or a time signature, but rather a raw and terrified feeling, R.I.P. eschews well trodden fantasy and mysticism tropes of the genre and focuses on conveying the horror and chaos inherent in the everyday reality of the human mind. With several years of touring under their heavily studded belt, R.I.P. has distinguished themselves from the interchangeable hordes of bands trying to play heavy metal by crafting an aesthetic and a sound all their own, focusing on the things that make metal heavy rather than adhering to the formulaic confines of a particular sub-genre.

Street Reaper opens with the knockout punch of “Unmarked Grave” and the rest is just sheer bludgeoning for bludgeoning’s sake as the album echoes the grimy vibe of legends like Saint Vitus, Pentagram and Motorhead, with the no b.s. aesthetic of the early Metal Massacre compilations."

Sergeant Thunderhoof
https://sergeantthunderhoof.bandcamp.com/

"Sergeant Thunderhoof formed in late 2013 from the ashes of many previous bands (Indica, Birds of Ares, Died Smiling, Sharp End First, Ratz Ass). The first EP (Zigurat) came out in early 2014 and explored the lyrical themes of alternative realities and histories. This fantastical basis has gone on to forge the overall theme of the band’s music throughout their work.

The first full length album (Ride of the Hoof) was released in November 2015 , followed by a live release (Live on Earth) in 2016 which was recorded in their home town of Bath in Somerset (UK).

2018 saw the release of their second full length (Terra Solus) and later in the year they appeared on ‘The Wall Redux’ record curated by Magnetic Eye Records, alongside the likes of The Melvins, ASG and Sasquatch.

Sergeant Thunderhoof remain defiantly unsigned and handle all their merch, bookings, manufacturing, design and fulfilment in-house. All their music is available for free or ‘pay what you want’ via their Bandcamp page."

Orbital Junction
https://orbitaljunction.bandcamp.com/

"Hailing from four corners of the UK and forged together in London, Orbital Junction give you an unhealthy slab of fuzz filled, beer steeped stoner rock."

"Orbital Junction‘s self-release debut EP makes an impression not only because of the markedly pro-shop production by Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studios and the cover art by SoloMacello, but the hooks to live up to those high standards."
