Boss Keloid - Melted On The Inch

Mastodon were among the first to bring together the fat riffs of sludge and stoner and the complex songwriting of prog. The progressive doom resurrection lately has been more focused on the stoner than the sludgy sound, so Boss Keloid come to fix that.

King Goat - Debt Of Aeons

There's a lot of fuss lately about the progressive tendencies of doom metal lately, from the more psychedelic Elder to the more traditional Pallbearer and now to the more epic King Goat. Surely this must be odd-time-signatures prog but slow, right?

Alkaloid - Liquid Anatomy

Alkaloid is where technical death metal and extreme progressive metal converge: a project concerned not so much with covering as many genres as possible, but with the multitude of textures and techniques that may be applied within a few.
