PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve not seen them as much as I might have liked to, the material that I’ve heard I have enjoyed so if its possible for me to be a part of their regional gig I shall be there with bells on. They are such a solid and interesting group and I think if Doom Metal is your thing that you should give them a chance if you have not already. That’s all I’ve got for now based on a hefty pile of things to do so let me close up with my asking what you readers think about this one? Chime in down below in the comments section.
