The Barnacle Cordious

Paria – “The Barnacle Cordious” Released March 17, 2009 on Blackmarket Activities Metal Archives claims that Paria is a metalcore band and nothing else. I would beg to differ.

Ox

Coalesce – “Ox” released June 16, 2009 on Relapse Though they have existed for nearly 15 years, various circumstances prevented this band from—frankly—coalescing! This changes starting now, as they sound like a well-oiled machine, fully capable of making The Dillinger Escape Plan and Converge run for their money. Most surprising is their several successful sonic experiments: a […]
