Princess - Grim Energy

Coming across like a stomp-heavy Dead & Divine, this
EP by Princess has some great sludge/stoner grooves
pounding out the speakers. The overall feel is hardcore
with a metallic feel to the guitars and the vocalist hits
the mark with some fine bellowing that slips in the odd
clean refrain.

The rhythm section are low slung and rumbling, with
a frantic delivery that is on the right side of brutal.

The riffs are powerful and have a sense of melody that
is sometimes lacking in this genre.

This is an accomplished first release that had me jumping
up and down.

Free download from Bandcamp
