Definitely not the sludge rock you're expecting. Unless your sludge rock is taking a lot of acid.
Seriously. It's the female-fronted track you never knew you needed.

Hello and welcome back to The Obituarist… it’s a new year, ladies and gentleman and this marks my 20th (!)…
Howdy Halloweeners, Trevor Strnad AKA The Obituarist here with another round of sick ghoulish extreme metal to keep you screaming this holiday.
Some combinations are just inevitably fantastic. Peanut butter and jelly. Chocolate cookies and milk. Black Sabbath and Clutch. With vocalist Neil Fallon and drummer Vinnie Appice from the previously mentioned two bands joined by Fu Manchu's Brad Davis and The Company Band's Dave Bone, the result is exactly what you'd expect.
For some, listening to metal began as an act of defiance or rebellion against parents, peers, etc. The distorted vocals, instrumentation, and nonconventional presentation in which the music was portrayed provided a platform for those who were unsatisfied or seeking more than the mainstream. It has been understood that black, death, grind, and a handful of other similar genres held the title of most radical paths of metal to explore, but I would argue that hardcore also took their place high on the extreme scale as of lately. While not relying on religious criticism or unfathomable tempos, Illinois-based Yüth Forever finds their musical extremism in the fusion of contrasting genres and rhythmical dissonance.
Hailing from The Sword's own hometown of Austin, Texas and also featuring a retro sound heavily favoring 70's boogie riffs, Scorpion Child proudly sidestep the battle tested fuzz rock that The Sword have only recently eschewed in their own right, establishing themselves instead as flag bearer for a relatively novel mix of 70's hard rock swing and 80's hair metal pomposity

Since their debut, Riverside has always carried the 'Porcupine Tree's little brother act' label. Yet, with that main comparison now on hiatus during extensive Steven Wilson solo work and touring underway, this may be the opportunity for the formerly mentioned four-piece group to step forward and make a significant impact in the international progressive rock community.
Gothenburg, Sweden's used-to-be best kept secret until last year's masterful Empress Rising, Monolord, have unveiled their latest heavy hitter that comes fully equipped with a crane and wrecking ball. Vænir is the doomed, sludgy, psychedelic sophomore that works to solidify the band's ten ton sound.
Get your fix of melodic death metal downtempo right here, right now.
Protestant is a Milwaukee, WI crust band with plenty of hardcore and metal influences to spare. The band has built a lengthy legacy since their formation in 2004 releasing a total of four LPs (including the new one), a variety of splits and singles, and even a few CDrs. The band is solidly punk in their approach with high octane live performances and similarly executed albums. J
For a lot of bands the sophomore release is a big deal. And for some it's a make or break…
So you're in the mood for some Alice in Chains, but the doomier styling of bands like Woods of Ypres…
