Unkle K's Bands of the Week
Wow. Well, it’s no secret I’ve been digging female vocalists lately. Here is another one to add to the mix - Stevie Bailey - although she shares the vocal duties with John Judkins (Rwake) in the wonderfully named Laser Flames On The Great Big News. This band is all over the place but in a good way. The track "Faith of the Blackened Heart" sounds like a cross between Black Mountain and Mayhem. Fantastic stuff. Please listen past the first track.
Another new band to me, that is trying something a bit different. Musically it’s great sounding doomy sludge with massive riffs and some noise parts, but it’s vocally that this band stands apart. The clear vocals with the dreamy approach really works for me. I could be wrong but I have a feeling this is a one man band, which makes it even more special.
