Down tempo stoner / noise metal. Monster riffs, some good grooves too.

Nefarious Wave
Blues Funeral
A bit of a progressive doom/extreme sound. Some harsh vox, overall musically fairly laid back with a little grit… cool stuff.

I think these have been out of print for a bit, and now reissued… some great heavy stuff put out by Dino Cazares while he wasn’t in Fear Factory… I liked both of these albums when they came out and still like them. Heavy and catchy too.

King Of Lies

Classic metal/hard rock… a catchy heavy edge while remaining grooving and accessible.

Aeons Of Oblivion

Harsh brutal death metal, with a freight train of drums and riffs with pissed off vox makes you wonder “what’s their problem?” I don’t care, but I like their music! haha

Echoes Of The Soul

Death metal with a hint of some technical/melodic/thrashy stuff going on… great stuff.
