"Heavy tunes for heavy times." That about says it all, doesn't it? That's how Samothrace vocalist Spinks describes his band's sound, and it couldn't be more fitting. Not only did Samothrace release one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful, unnervingly cathartic a

Virginia' based doomhaulers Salome have been everywhere lately, playing shows up and down the East Coast, swinging by Atlanta to rock with the best of 'em, and blowing out eardrums across the globe with their devilishly decimating brand of riff worship. Their self-titled debut (out now on Vendetta) has taken up permanent residence in my CD pla
