______________________________
PALLBEARER: Formed in 2008, Little Rock, Arkansas quartet PALLBEARER unleashed their penchant for heaviness on unsuspecting ears with their monstrously thick take on classic doom metal. With a sound rooted in the slow, riff-centric traditions laid down by Black Sabbath, the band takes a fairly straightforward approach to doom, forming layers of sludgy guitars into an impossibly thick wall of oppressive bleakness that envelops the listener. Pallbearer's most recent album, which was self-produced and recorded to analog tape at Fellowship Hall Sound in Little Rock, was mixed by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Melvins, Soundgarden). Titled Heartless, it was issued by Profound Lore in early 2017.

SPIRIT ADRIFT
To put a spin on the Albert Ayler album title, metal is a healing force of the universe. Its riffs, wails and screams bring not only catharsis, but also metallic salvation. This is a prevailing theme throughout Spirit Adrift's Chained To Oblivion, which was written and recorded by Nate Garrett, a musician who splits his time between Arizona (Gatecreeper, ex-Take Over And Destroy) and Arkansas. But where his Arizona bands deliver metallic sludge and filth, Spirit Adrift communes with the wide-eyed expanse of American doom-metal. With its rattling bass tone and Garrett's arresting voice double-tracked for maximum harmony, "Psychic Tide" exists somewhere between the slow crunch of Sleep and the majestic doom of Cathedral. And, like his fellow Arkansas comrades in Pallbearer, Garrett favors loads of twin-lead guitars that pace these nearly 10 minutes of fuzzy glory.

ADAM FAUCETT
Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, and possessing a voice that the Onion A.V. Club warns “knocks your brain into the back of your skull”, Adam Faucett has drawn comparisons from Tim Buckley to Cat Power to Otis Redding. Called “one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer.” (Arkansas Times) Faucett has again pushed the borders of his “part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler” (Arkansas Democrat Gazette) with the release Blind Water Finds Blind Water, a record of his most arresting and beautiful songs to date.
