Victory Garden – What’s Left Behind EP Review (For fans of Smashing Pumpkins, Modest Mouse)

“Selfish” by metal newcomers Judgemetal

A good effort by independent metal act Judgemetal comes to us in the form of “Selfish”. The recording is respectable and the spirit is there, with the opening vocals reminiscent of stoner metal clutching onto a well chosen vocal line (the classic ‘Astronomy Domine’ by Pink Floyd comes to mind). The use of noise instead...
