SEVEN SISTERS OF SLEEP: Self-titled: 7”

Man alive, do I love this band. SSoS’ debut 12” was in heavy rotation for months on end upon its release, and I can pretty much guarantee that the same will be true for this 7”. Seething, ominous, bludgeoning, heavy hardcore that is equal parts classic doom, late ‘90s/early ‘00s Clevo/Cali metalcore, and blackened thrash. This band is as much about atmosphere/aesthetic as it is about sound, and both elements are fucking painful and stunning. Do not sleep on this shit.
