Forks of Ivory - The Isolator
I've gotten a couple of submissions recently, which is cool, but I've been doing a really bad job of that whole listening to them thing. But I will get to them!
Okay, here's one. Forks of Ivory is a two piece band that fuses droning doom, black metal, and heavy post-metal. They play each of these styles well, but in the main song here, "Sentence," they're juxtaposed in a way that's a little jarring. The other two tracks are an ambient intro and a shorter, purely sludge song. Plenty of potential on display here, if not as much fully developed ideas. Keep an eye on these guys.
