Dissident Aggression: Curse The Son – Isolator

Posted by on April 15, 2016

The history of doom metal is one that runs deep and basically parallel with metal itself.

While it may have waxed and waned in popularity over […]

Dissident Aggression: Sun Dagger – Invisible World

Posted by on February 5, 2016

Sometimes as a metal fan you just need to spread your wings a little and expand your mind and definition to what constitutes ‘metal.’ Most psych rock bands exist on the outer fringes of the metal world, like a tribe of ancient hunter-gatherers in a world of fast cars and high rises.

Rough day at the office?  Maybe the commute was extra long, maybe the boss was giving you the business for the most mundane reason in existence?  Tired of reading and hearing propaganda passed off as news?  Extra annoyed with all the armchair historians laying claim to who should bomb who in 140 characters or less?  […]

Posted by on October 25, 2013

The title of the new album from Connecticut’s Sea of Bones is The Earth Wants Us Dead.  This may very well be the case.  Have humans over-populated to the point where we’ve overstayed our welcome?    Have we destroyed so much of our precious environment and its resources that Mother Earth wants us out like […]

Dissident Aggression: Scratching and Sniffing with Stone Titan

Posted by on July 12, 2013

Here’s a question for you.  What do you get when you mix a doom metal power trio with the dirty, sludgy musical aesthetics of the smelliest swampland around?  You get the foundation of a recipe for Connecticut’s Stone Titan.
