Well.. let me start off by saying “Wow.” Having never heard Greyline before, I wasn’t too sure what to expect.

This weekend, we’re bringing you more metal of the doom/sludge variety from the southeastern United States, in the guise of Sourvein and their latest album Black Fangs. Formed in North Carolina, these guys have been around for quite some time now– since 1993– and that really isn’t much of a [...]

They call it the Dirty South for a reason– with bands such as Baroness and Kylesa (both out of Savannah, GA), Torche (Miami, FL), Floor (Central FL), and Mastodon (Atlanta, GA) all producing their own variations of what’s known as “sludge metal,” the Southeastern United States has become a hotbed [...]
