This North Carolina five piece emerges on the scene with a nice slab of traditional heavy metal flavored doomy goodness. Sighting Trouble and Pentagram as two of the bands main influences, these southern gentlemen certainly proudly wear it on their sleeves. With a solid rhythm section, duel guitars, and the Halford-esque vocals of Jeff Neal, Dogbane have put together one strong debut effort.
These days the term “traditional heavy metal” is loosely used. Well one may ask “what is traditional heavy metal” and we simply respond with Dogbane.
