Old Man Doom The opening riffage had my scarred knuckles reaching for my whiskey glass and the buy now doohickey. This motherfucker rocks. Play this for the ladies and this will definitely moisten them panties.

Flotzilla thumbnail
Flotzilla 16 minutes of pure heaviness. They're exceptionally gifted songwriters!! If that's the blueprint for the new album, it's gonna be huge! No doubt about it. By the way, always i listen to the acoustic tune, i get a "Days Of The New" debut vibe... Feels good !!

DEATH BY DESIGN (lyrics) As above so below Better as a whole Proper place at the right time Continues a state of growth No more shining light Due to a lack of knowledge Thrusted into a forward future Only to’ve forgotten why Vibrations ring inside your head Simple life develops a soul Your reasons make you unaware of love So we eat ourselves away Poisoning the host The shell of a ghost Communication complication Spreads the growth of disease Spirit emerging from a vessel returned From forth the ashes I am given this earth Inside my mind


Seattle's doom/sludge trio Sorcia deliver an EP that showcases the band's versatility with a 16 minute long title track, "Death By Design".

“We are very pleased to announce that we have joined forces with Desert Records for the release of our forthcoming EP 'Death By Design'. The creation of this EP was a huge step out of our comfort zone, and it explores some of the farthest depths of our collective creativity. The title track 'Death By Design' is an epic journey that delves into the most primitive concepts of human existence and death."

The mighty Tad Doyle will be at the helm once again for the recording of this opus as well as the talented Mike Hawkins for the artwork.

The CD will include an exclusive bonus track, a smokey, stripped-down ACOUSTIC rendition of the song 'Dusty'.
