WOODGRAIN: The Bronze: CD

Woodgrain play heavy electronic/metal style stuff with an almost prog complexity. The playing is strong and they certainly have their musicianship down. I am more of a heavy riff kinda fan—so this is not really my scene for the most part—but fans of The Melvins will find a lot to like here. In fact, this record was produced by ex-Melvins member Mark Deutrom. Like labelmates Tia Carrera, this is all instrumental jams, only instead of fuzz, there is an emphasis on keyboards.
