Rock and metal are stupid and Bathers of the Tombs are an act that turns all the cliches of the genre up to 11 (oh hey, there’s a cliche right there!) to great acclaim. With Rock’n’roll fetishism they release the funniest record of the week. Heads will smack as you get old-school inspired riffs and beats.

Goes well with Bathers of the Tombs – in aesthetics at least – we have the latest from heavy metalers wild master. fans of Judas Priest and Huntress will have a great time with this one. Fans of musicians with bags over their heads will also appreciate this. I’m sure it’s a scene of his own.

Concluding this week with the busiest man in groove metal Max Cavalera. the whole comes four years after the killer Ritual and feels like a sequel to that one with some additional experimentation. Some pretty cool guests here too like John Tardy from obituarysome guys from Eternal Champion, Power Tripby Chris Ulsh and Richie Cavalera incite. Our Max has a full review here.
