In episode sixteen, we delve into Scott Lawlor’s beautiful and heartfelt tribute to his brother Joe, who passed away November 2017. We dabble in some delectable sludge metal riffage enshrouded in post-metal atmospheres with Mass Culture’s Primal | Ephemeral and we embark into the uncharted auditory territory of power electronics via the mysterious one-man project, Bell, and their album Secrets from a Distant Star.
