NETHER REGIONS
INTO THE BREACH
ABNORMAL GAIT

Portland, OR quartet Nether Regions churns out hefty chunks of sludgy post metal with the intent to oppress on INTO THE BREACH. This eight-track endeavor enchants ears with a blend of High on Fire-influenced heaviness (“Alpha/Omega”) merging bouts of hypnotizing psychedelic metal (“Pale Faced Gods”) and thought provoking and thunderous aggression championed by the likes of Mastodon and Isis to tie the colossal riffs, burly buildups and crushing cave-ins together (“Blood Ritual”). Throwing a pinch of black metal malaise into their surefire and steady attack (“Your Name is Madness”), Nether Regions stays within the underground confines defined by its namesake, relying on redundant waves of warm riffs and rollicking rhythmic regality to produce a carefully constructed and intense potpourri of thick and dirty modern metal. -Mike SOS
