2019 Best of Metal: #15 Bask-III

Release date:  11/8/2019

Origin:  Asheville, NC

Personnel:  Scott Middleton, Zeb Camp, Jesse Van Note, Ray Worth

Bask is a band in a similar vein to a number of bands coming out of the southeastern portion of the U.S.  It’s almost as if a new crop of bands are creating a new version of southern rock.  And I fucking love it.  Bask brings a bit of southern rock, grunge and stoner metal and blends it in a very groovy and melodic manner that is just infectious.  Right in line for fans of All Them Witches, more recent The Sword and Royal Thunder.
