———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
WILL HAVEN’S sixth full-length album and first for MINUS HEAD RECORDS, the aptly titled “Muerte” (Spanish for “death”), feels like the beginning for the Sacramento quartet— However, the band’s origins can be traced back to 1995 when they first emerged as a staple in their hometown’s storied underground. For the past two decades-plus, they’ve existed on the fringe of extreme music championing an apocalyptic amalgam of metal, noise, hardcore, and alternative all their own. WILL HAVEN has a few west coast shows coming up and a European Tour this fall!
HIGH PRIESTESS is a new psych/doom trio from Los Angeles made up of of Katie Gilchrest on guitar and vocals, founder Mariana Fiel on bass and vocals, and Megan Mullins on drums. This is their debut album for RIPPLE MUSIC, an impressive introduction, full of strong performances, promising songs and just enough individuality to mark High Priestess out from the metal hordes. HIGH PRIESTESS is near indescribable to the uninitiated. To call them a heavy psychedelic band is falling short of what this band truly is. Check them out all over the west coast starting soon!
“Second Coming of Heavy” is RIPPLE MUSIC’S anthology of the best of the heavy underground, a 10 chapter volume of splits featuring 20 unsung heroes of heavy. Chapter 8 features two band, San Diego’s old school stoner rock legends, RIDE THE SUN, and Germany’s heavy blues trio, THE TRIKES. Get it before it’s too late over at RIPPLE!
