2011These guys do it really good, but are not exactly bringing anything new to the table. Nothing new at all. Stoner/Sludge much like Grave At Sea, Eyehategod. That kind of stuff.
-Well, I suppose they're introducing some Black Metal elements.

2011Stoner Sludge Doom that is very much inspired by Bongzilla/Weedeater. Sometimes they push the boundries so far as to remind you of Church Of Misery or even Sleep. Extended riff beatdowns no vocals. Belzebong are not bringing anything new to the table, but that's not the point. Good production. If your a fan of any of the bands mentioned above you'll like this. If your not familiar with the bands mentioned above, you should check out all their stuff and you might find you don't need this.

2011Traditional Doom metal that doesn't drag. I'm digging this one. It's got a Reverend Bizarre thing going on here.
2006Mid 80's sounding Thrash. On one hand it sounds like generic Thrash. On the other hand it makes me want to jump around. Of course it goes on too long, but that might just be because I'm not 14 years old. They don't really hit their stride till a few songs in anyway.
2002Similar to earlier Electric Wizard albums but the riffs are not as ugly or awesome. They hammer some riffs into the ground which is all fine, but by the time he gets to the wah wah it should be over, but it's not.
1988Similar to Death Angel somewhere around their second album. This is a bit more controled and not quite as aggressive. Production is kinda flat. Thrash that's a tiny bit experimental.
2011Bunch of screaming Hardcore. I love the tunes, but the screechee screaming vocals wear me out. The vocals are just to far out front on every song. Like they should be the focal point, and no they shouldn't.
2011They got dynamics and shit.
-70's hard rock inspired modern day Doomy Progressive Metal. Black Sabbath/Pink Floyd meets Sleep territory.
-This is a compilation.

201170's progressive rock, or is it Post Rock? Gothic vocals. It's like Neo-Post Traditional Doom Folk psychedelia.
-File next to Ancestors - Peace Of Mind...oh! make that, Of Sound Mind.
2008Mercyful Fate worship. If King Diamond had a cold and was singing in a cave. The band rocks real good.
Progressive 70's hard rock with soulful vocals. The Hammond is leading the charge most of the time here. They stray away from the hard rock sometimes.

2011Big and slow like early Electric Wizard / Acid King. Sometimes when they speed it up they're kinda in Orange Goblin at their most slowed down and heaviest. Then it's back to even slower Doom. I like this one.

2011One of my favorite releases from 2011. Good songs. Good vocal harmonies. Catchy hard rockin' killer album.
-and what heavy band worth their weight in beard from the last 20 years hasn't been directly or indirectly influenced by the Melvins.

2011Doomy Sludge rock with a little bit more dynamics than the average Doomy Sludge Rock. The singer tries a few things that don't really work, but most of the time he delivers. One of my favorites for 2011.
-I wish this band was called Heavy Balls.
