DESERTS OF MARS new heavy rock EP "Return from the Void" is pure badass

DESERTS OF MARS new heavy rock EP "Return from the Void"
DESERTS OF MARS new heavy rock EP "Return from the Void"
20 minutes of badass heavy rock is waiting for you on the new EP from DESERTS OF MARS. It's been a few years since their last album, and by the sound of it the band has been saving up the hard fuzzy riffs until they were ready to be unleashed. This set of tracks doesn't slow down at any point, and the vocals soar over the fuzz to deliver one of the best hard rocks albums I've heard this year. Check out "Return from the Void" from Deserts of Mars:


Deserts of Mars is from Austin and its members are:
  • Tony Salvaggio – Founding/lead member of DoM whose growling bass has been known to shake the stars and is the perfect complement to his melodic vocals.
  • Morgan Faber - A drum powerhouse from another galaxy, laying waste to foes with thunderous fury.
  • Bradley Barnes - Heavy Axe-Slinger extraordinaire, his guitar is known to soothe the stars or shatter planets, whatever the Mars Metal deems necessary.


From the band:
Austin, TX based Deserts of Mars was formed in 2006 with a heavy fuzzed out bass sound and the idea that the Riff Rules ALL!!!

"Them Doomed Roads" is the new stoner split from GODBUD and STRIDER


"Them Doomed Roads" is the new stoner split from GODBUD and STRIDER
"Them Doomed Roads" new stoner split from GODBUD and STRIDER
GODBUD and STRIDER have released a new split "Them Doomed Roads" with 4 tracks & 40 minutes of solid stoner music. The music of these two bands blends together seamlessly which makes this sound like one band's album than a split. Strider goes a little more heavy psych while GodBud goes more towards doom, but still these two bands sound great together. Have a listen to 'Them Doomed Roads":


Besides a sonic sound that ties the bands together, the vocals are also very complementary.

I also like how they set up a special Bandcamp page so that we can stream and download all of the tracks on the split at once. Them Doomed Roads is 4 tracks and 40 minutes that deliver a full album of stoner doom. Right on!

STRIDER
GODBUD

The reason to make a demo is to introduce your fans to your music, and GENIUS OF SUGARCANE has done exactly that with a 3-track demo "Preludes From New Times" that covers a lot of sonic territory. The music ranges from stoner to doom to psych, the vocals are in English, Portuguese, and an instrumental track. Even the themes range from Cthulu, spirituality, and nuclear war. This is one of the best demo albums I've heard in a long time. Check out "Preludes From New Times" from Genius of Sugarcane:

DuneGazer debut album ".​.​.​and the desert opened its maw" is modern grunge


Grunge is a musical style that deserves to live forever, and I'm glad that the debut album from Germany's DUNEGAZER has arrived to carry on the grunge torch. ".​.​.​and the desert opened its maw" is 40 minutes of the rawest, roughest, edgiest kind of grunge that always keeps it fresh and original. With extended instrumental sections but also with unique vocals (a requirement of grunge), DuneGazer delivers the grungy goods. Have a listen to ".​.​.​and the desert opened its maw":


As much as I like the vocals, I especially dig the long instrumental sections. "Droughnought" is a good example of that. DuneGazer is taking the best of the original grunge sound of the late 80s and early 90s, but giving it a fresh sound with these long parts which give the trio a chance to show off their mastery of the sound.

FFO: Mudhoney, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Nirvana with a modern sound with extended instrumentals.


DuneGazer is:
× Paco
× Ruben
× Jascha
From the band:
Dune Gazer is a 3-piece rock band from Oldenburg. Basically, the three musicians came together from much tougher genres, but together they discovered their passion for the crazy sound of the 70s and combined it with other subtle influences from stoner rock and shoegaze to form their own variant, between brutal, in fuzz soaked, sound walls and weightless, melodic clean parts changes.

MOONSTONE debut stoner doom album drops on Dec. 28

MOONSTONE debut stoner doom album
MOONSTONE

MOONSTONE drops their debut stoner doom album on December 28th with 5 tracks of pounding, heavy riffs and ghostly vocals. This set of 5 songs has a chugging, relentless flow that gives this album the feel of a more experienced band. "Ash and Stone" is the pre-release single which I really dig, and if I had to pick a favorite from this solid list, it would be "Pale Void" which hits that perfect blend of heavy riffs and vocals from the dark realms. Stream MOONSTONE s/t free on Bandcamp:



Moonstone is a band I would love to see live at a show. It doesn't take much imagination to get the idea for how their show will pound your head with these heavy riffs.


Moonstone is:
  • Jan Maniewski - guitars and vocals
  • Wiktor Kozak - bass
  • Kacper Kubień - drums
From the band:
Assembled in 2017, Moonstone has stormed the stages of Kraków with their dynamic take on stoner/doom metal. Set to come out on December 28th, their self-titled debut album is an intense combination of eerie vocals and thunderous instrumentals. A surge of hypnotic guitar riffs, heavy bass, and pounding drums from start to finish, Moonstone is a riotous newcomer to the scene, one which is sure to leave you intoxicated in every sense of the word. Don’t miss the fucking trip.
Label: Galactic Smokehouse

There will be a CD too so follow Moonstone on Bandcamp for the info:

How (and WHY) to send out download codes on Bandcamp


TLDR; Spend $3.00 to buy download codes on Bandcamp and send them to reviewers and super fans. Here's how!
This post is for all the bands out there who are trying to get the word out on their music. Well, that should be EVERY band regardless of their size, but especially new underground bands who don't have a label and a PR company and all that. Bands have to get things done yourselves.
