It’s #BandcampFriday again! Here are my picks for this month

6th album from one of India’s oldest metal acts. Put on that denim and leather, pour a drink and hit play!

Stoner rock from Norway with the right amount of fuzz.

New music from the Scottish maniacs that seamlessly blends hardcore and electronica.

2 tracks of drone performed by Mel and Topon from Fuck the facts. Trippy stuff!

Reissue of 2008 release from India technical death metal act. Sounds massive thanks to the remix and remaster.
