As a general rule, I tend to like pretty much everything that Sargent House puts out. After all, their roster incudes acts Russian Circles, Chelsea Wolfe, Emma Ruth Rundle/Marriages, Omar Rodriguez Lopez/The Mars Volta/Bosnian Rainbows, Mutoid Man, and Helms Alee, just to name a few. As a general rule, I also tend to really enjoy Japanese post-everything rockers Boris.

Almost two years ago, I found an album on the internet and it was, in many ways, life-changing. It was atmospheric, haunting, and crushingly majestic. It sort of fell within the same box as established acts like Cult of Luna, ISIS, Neurosis and so on, but also with something new added to the mix. That album was Metamorphosis by a band named Crib45, hailing from Finland. It is and will always be, one of my personal favorite albums.

There was an editorial on MetalSucks a couple of years ago that made the argument that metal vocalists were becoming irrelevant. I had just seen Russian Circles live for the first time a few days before, so I found myself readily agreeing with a lot of the points being made in the piece.
