The Pillarist EP

Bucky I love the fact that this heavy, technical, and all around rocking sludge metal exists without the use of the screamy, growly, guttoral vocals. Not all heavy music has to ruin itself with crap vocals and Astrakhan display it nicely with a well polished but still "heavy" vocal tone. Look forward to what the future brings for this band.

Scumbag Seemingly content to cut their own path through a metal jungle Astrakhan prove once again that they can do whatever the hell they want and come up trumps in every way! Do they have to work like packhorses to get this creative or is it as naturally effortless as they make it sound? Goddamn awesome stuff! Favorite track: REST IN DEPTHS.
