Featuring members of New Jersey acts such as The Banner, The Oval Portrait and Mermaid In A Manhole, The Sun The Moon The Stars is a relatively new band that blasts out six (six six) metal/stoner tunes on “Mind Reader” that are far more interesting than what any other extreme metal band has been churning out lately.

True to the spirit of Black Sabbath, the riffs sound as metallic as they do bluesy and have a meaty, sludgy sound to them before they run for the hills Iron Maiden style. Coupled to thumping bass lines, frollicking drums and Matthew Dwyer’s schreeching screams, it’s a massive wall of sound that comes crashing down on you. Hell, if you can keep a song interesting for almost ten minutes (“Firefly, You Shine”), you’re alright in my book!

Fans of High On Fire, Pentagram and Doomriders should take notice… a new player has just entered the game.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
