BLUE ASIDE's introductory EP from 2010, "The Orange Tree", showed promising musical glimpses from a band as creatively indebted to BLACK SABBATH as PINK FLOYD, but possessed of enough common sense to combine the two into novel shapes, the better to erect imposing monuments of mesmerizing space doom. Now, the Boston-based trio has delivered an ...

The Almighty Propagator of Doom and Despair - PTAHIL

Based on the available evidence, one would think that the two musicians behind Fort Wayne, Indiana's PTAHIL make their permanent residence in the city sewers, merely braving the surface air and starry night when the time is ripe to dump their latest extreme metal discharge on the ol' record company's front stoop - in a ...
