Release date: April 7, 2020

Origin: Rochester, New York

It feels like lots of bands have tried to jump on the whole renaissance into psychedelic metal of late. To me, King Buffalo is one of the go-to bands in this resurgence. These guys just know how to construct a atmosphere of spaced-out jams. And, whoever they got to produce this album just did a bang-up job on making this thing sound so good. Every little texture just shines.
