Editor’s Note: Stoner Metal and Doom Metal are subgenres that many people use synonymously, but there are also likely a variety of distinctions between the two as well. For the purposes of this article, we’re going to say the subgenres are essentially one and the same. Check out the video below for a brief history of the Stoner/Doom subgenre.

After reading about three acoustic interludes on Agalloch’s The Serpent & The Sphere being written by a Canadian songwriter in a band called Musk Ox, I immediately found a Bandcamp page for an instrumental band from Toronto called MuskOx.

King Crimson has posted a snippet of a seemingly new song, 'Venturing Unto Joy, Pt. 1'. This is the first recording of the new KC lineup, even though it only features four of the seven members of the band.

The description from KC label DGM's website reads as follows:

You've probably never heard of this surprisingly good one-man project called Prevenge because the band still hasn't suffered the mythical "big break" yet. This is hardly surprising given that Prevenge makes music just for the sake of making music. What I've heard previously from Prevenge consists of not-so-weird post metal and black metal. Although the black metal side is stronger on Paramnesia, Max Reff is still feeding his music with artistic nourishment and the album deviates enough from the black metal path not to make this another generic, useless record.
