This brilliant 5-track album of southern metal from POSTE942 is something that is very edgy for hard rock and has a lick of metal in there to shake things up a bit, and it works fabulously. “Extended Play” busts in with a grunge sound to the guitars that are greatly backed up with the melody of the vocalist whose voice is absolutely perfect for this southern style of hard rock where each riff is gritty as fucking sandpaper. The cover art alone shows the grit that is jam packed into these songs to the absolute brim which gives the album the feel … Continue reading POSTE942 – Extended Play
Whoever says southern metal, grunge metal, or anything of the sort isn’t could can go shut the hell up now. This reissue of Brotherhood’s “Till Death. . .” is the greatest of that kind of music because it really does sound like a band of rebels that made a band and started playing in the damn garage.

The vocals have the harshness of Pantera’s and they are just purely raw to the core and the listener has no choice … Continue reading Vices – New Breed LP

The harshness alone seems reminiscent of “Drag the Waters” by Pantera vaguely but to me I can still make a connection even if there isn’t a connection in the first place. What make the two similar is that the songs from Methane’s “Southern Metal” have slow but heavy sound and rhythm to them that just make them catchy to anyone who can enjoy that kind of music. The vocals have that are signature to Pantera also which have that well done mix of a raspy … Continue reading Methane – Southern Metal
